We want to make your journey to Liverpool Hope University go as smoothly as possible. This page tells you what you need to do before you arrive, and what you can expect in the first few weeks.
The University has a special Arrival Day each semester so that all new students receive a warm welcome and can meet each other. We have lots of staff on all three campuses and at our Halls of Residence to make sure you settle in and have all you need for a great start.
We would like all students to arrive on these special days, but if you can't, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure we meet you when you get here.
Arrival Day is mainly aimed at students moving into Halls of Residence, but as the University's Induction Week (September) and the International Hub's Orientation Programme (September and January) start straight after Arrivals Day, we would encourage any undergraduate students living off campus to also arrive on the same weekend.
If you are a postgraduate student, your course and Induction week will start a week later, but you are welcome to join us on Arrivals Day and have an extra week to settle in before your course starts.
Arrival Days for 2020/21 are:
Fall Semester - Saturday 26 September 2020
Spring semester - Thursday 7 January 2021
You can travel to Liverpool via the following routes:
You need to register before you arrive. Full details can be found at:
International Orientation starts from Sunday 27 September 2020 at Aigburth Park and from Monday 28 September 2020 at Hope Park
The International Hub offers an International 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 Aigburth Park during the weekend of Arrivals Day. Just email us at email@example.com if you want to join us (or just turn up!) - otherwise we will see you at Hope Park on the first Monday of term.
Orientation will start at Aigburth Park with local and city tours. The programme will then move to Hope Park with a Welcome Meeting hosted by the Head of the International Hub, Dr Wendy Bignold and her team.
The programme continues throughout the week and will include campus tours, registration, 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 'What's The Difference' workshop where we will discuss UK and local customs, language and food and we will explain the many opportunities for travel around the UK and Europe.
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.
During the first day of the Orientation Programme you will be able to speak to our Finance Team about the payment of your fees. You may need to have a short interview with them, but this will depend on your circumstances. Here is a quick guide to what you can expect:
International Students on a three/four year Undergraduate degree - if you have not paid your Tuition fee (and Accommodation fee, if applicable), or Package fee, in full, a payment plan will be agreed for the balance of your fees.
International Students on a one year Postgraduate degree - if you have not paid your Tuition fee (and Accommodation fee, if applicable), or Package fee in full, you will be expected to pay 50% of the remaining balance and agree a date for payment of the remaining 50%
Study Abroad students - if you have applied for a one-semester Programme, your (or your University) should pay the Study Abroad Fee Package in full before you arrive. If paid you will not need a Finance interview.
If you are have applied for a full academic year Programme, you (or your University) should pay 50% of the Fee Package before you arrive, and the remaining 50% within three months of arrival.

International Exchange students - there is no tuition fee due, but if you choose to live in Halls of Residence (recommended), you will automatically be liable for the International Exchange Fee Package, which you will be expected to pay in full before arrival.
