"It's always been a passion of mine to start my own company, be my own boss and manage my own establishment. Without the help and support of Liverpool Hope University and the Business Gateway I don't think I would have succeeded in reaching my goals." - Amaka Ozoani

Liverpool Hope University graduate, Amaka Ozoani, has been accepted to receive Tier 1 visa support due to the new governmental scheme for international graduate entrepreneurs.  Amaka graduated in the spring of 2013 with a Masters in Human Resource Management from Liverpool Hope University. After discovering graduate opportunities for small business start-ups, she decided to seek support from the Liverpool Hope’s Business Gateway in getting her Recruitment Business up and running. After receiving this competitive sponsorship (900 places throughout the UK), Amaka went through a rigorous application process researching, defending and marketing her Recruitment business proposal.

Amaka is now in the process of developing her Recruitment Company and already has a small client base in the Liverpool area. She hopes to expand her business in the future to encompass a global market.

This work visa route was introduced in April 2013.

Liverpool Hope University graduate, Amaka Ozoani, has been accepted to receive Tier 1 visa support due to the new governmental scheme for international graduate entrepreneurs.  Amaka graduated in the spring of 2013 with a Masters in Human Resource Management from Liverpool Hope University. After discovering graduate opportunities for small business start-ups, she decided to seek support from the Liverpool Hope’s Business Gateway in getting her Recruitment Business up and running. After receiving this competitive sponsorship (900 places throughout the UK), Amaka went through a rigorous application process researching, defending and marketing her Recruitment business proposal.

Amaka is now in the process of developing her Recruitment Company and already has a small client base in the Liverpool area. She hopes to expand her business in the future to encompass a global market.

 

Tier 4 Doctorate Extension Visa Scheme

This work visa route was introduced in April 2013. It is designed to give students who have almost finished their UK PhD or other doctorate qualification an additional 12 months of Tier 4 (General) immigration permission in which to look for and start work in the UK. This visa must be applied for before the student receives notification of their final results and they can apply up to 60 days before this date. Once this date has passed, they are no longer eligible to apply. This visa must be applied for from within the UK and the student must have a valid Tier 4 General Student visa at the time.

Students can apply by contacting internationaladmission@hope.ac.uk for an application form.

 

For more information on the Business Gateway and the enterprise services that are offered to Hope students, graduates and staff, please contact Carol Buckman on buckmac@hope.ac.uk or Sarah Atherton on atherts@hope.ac.uk.‌

Service and Leadership Award

The Liverpool Hope Service and Leadership Award is offered as an extra-curricular programme involving service-based experiences, development of leadership potential and equipping you for a career in a rapidly changing world. It is a direct enhancement to your degree, something which is ‌complimentary but different and which has a distinct ‘value added’ component. It is for those who particularly want to make a difference in this world, to be involved in the development of a moral and ethical society and to gain an understanding of social justice.

‌The award runs alongside your degree and gives recognition of service work you have performed. The award is structured carefully with leadership training, preparation for service work and reflection on your experiences as compulsory elements. The main part of the award is the service itself. You can undertake a wide variety of service projects, within the University, in the local community, serving Northwest region or national organisations and in some cases on our range of international ‘Global Hope’ projects.
