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.  

We start with a Welcome Meeting hosted by the Head of the International Hub, Dr Wendy Bignold, with refreshments.  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.

During the following week, we will help you with registration, course choices, document checking, ID card collection, Library Induction, financial planning and you can visit the Freshers’ Fair where you can join the Student Union 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.
