Arrangements for the start of term

As classes start from Monday 7th January, we will work around your study schedule to complete your orientation tasks, such as document checks, ID card collection and Library induction please ensure that you follow the Orientation Programme – copies available on arrival and from the International Hub.

Paying your tuition/accommodation fees

Study Abroad students - your Study Abroad Package fee is due in full before you arrive. If you have paid, or your University has paid on your behalf, you will not need to speak to the Finance Office after arrival. If you have not paid and you are responsible for your Package fee, you will be asked to meet with the Finance Office, and payment will be due in full (unless you are waiting for US Federal Aid).

For information about what is involved in your Package, please refer to the Study Abroad Terms and Conditions that have been emailed to you.

International Exchange students – you do not pay tuition fees, however, if you are living in Halls of Residence, you will automatically be liable for the International Exchange Package fee, which should have been paid before arrival. If you have not paid, you will be asked to meet with the Finance Office and payment will be due in full.

For information about what is included in your Package, please refer to the International Exchange Terms and Conditions that have been emailed to you.

Exchange students living off campus do not have fees to pay to Liverpool Hope University but will not receive the benefits included in the International Exchange Package.
