Orientation Programme

The International Hub offer a bespoke Orientation Programme which includes a Welcome and Information session and a range of activities to help you to feel at home.  For students living in Halls of Residence, this starts as soon as you arrive.  New students living off campus are welcome to join in any of the Orientation activities at Hope Park or Aigburth Park - see Programme.

Orientation starts officially at Hope Park with a Welcome Meeting and breakfast, hosted by the Head of the International Hub, Dr Wendy Bignold.  This is followed by a tour of the Hope Park Campus and the opportunity to ask any questions about your course choices or anything that may be worrying you.

We will help you with registration, course choices, document checking, ID card collection, Library Induction, financial planning and help with joining the Student Union's clubs and societies.

We will introduce you to our Chaplaincy Team and make you aware of the variety of social events where you can meet other students and make new friends.  We will hold a workshop about travel opportunities and tell you about our extra curricular activities, such as the British Life course and the Certificate in Service and Leadership.

We will even take you on a trip to the historic city of Chester by train, where you can walk the city walls, visit the amphitheatre and browse around the Cathedral.


Paying for your Tuition and Room (if applicable)

During the first day of the Orientation Programme, you will have an interview with our Finance Team to discuss your fees.   The interview content will vary from student to student, depending on your circumstances, but here is a guideline of what to expect:

Students on a three year Undergraduate Degree - you will have already paid a Tuition fee Deposit - during your Finance interview, a payment plan will be agreed for the balance of your fees

Students on a one year Postgraduate Degree - you will have already paid a Tuition Fee deposit - during your Finance interview you will be expected to pay 50% of the remaining balance and agree a date for payment of the remaining 50%

Study Abroad Students - your Study Abroad Package fee is due in full before you arrive.  If you have paid or your University may be paying on your behalf, your interview will confirm this.  If you have not paid and you are responsible for your Package fee, you will be asked to pay in full during your Finance interview

International Exchange Students - there is no tuition fee due but if you are living in Halls of Residence, you will automatically be liable for the International Exchange Package fee, which you will be expected to pay in full before arrival. If you have not paid, you will be asked to pay in full during your Finance interview.  Exchange students living off campus do not have fees to pay to Liverpool Hope University.
