The ways Liverpool Hope University is supporting international students during the Covid crisis are to be discussed at an online conference.
Hope welcomes individuals from across the globe, and has introduced a range of measures to support both existing and prospective overseas students amidst the unprecedented disease pandemic.
On Thursday 16th, 9am, Hope’s Professor Raouf Naguib will address what the University is doing to reassure and support students during a live online webinar.
While primarily aimed at those arriving at Hope from the Philippines, Professor Naguib hopes it’ll answer a range of broader questions that any overseas students, and their families, might have.
Professor Naguib, Senior Lecturer in Maths and Computer Science, explains: “The University remains totally committed to protecting our international students, both physically and mentally, and reassuring them of the solutions being found to keep their courses on track.
“In the webinar we’ll be talking about the specific measures Hope has taken, including the wealth of online resources, mental health and wellbeing services, as well as changes to assessments and graduations.
“But we’ll also be addressing any future concerns about visa processing and post-study work permits, as we look to calm any fears by outlining the potential solutions.”
The webinar is being run in conjunction with The British Council (Philippines), The British Embassy and the United Kingdom Education Advisory Service (UKEAS).
It’s also being run in partnership with Manila’s prestigious De La Salle University.
