Our Student Support and Well-being team are on hand to offer advice and help with everything from financial support to careers advice and health concerns. They provide a one-stop service and will address all aspects of pastoral care in an integrated way, without passing between different departments.

The University provides a comprehensive range of services to support students’ well-being throughout their studies. Students have access to a range of professional support practitioners including Learning Support Advisers, Counsellors, Mental Health Advisers, and Student Well-being Officer. Students can access help via our daily drop-in services or by arranged appointment.

Counselling

Liverpool Hope is committed to supporting students throughout their studies. We offer a free, confidential, professional counselling service to help students deal with any personal issues that may be affecting your studies, self-esteem, relationships, emotional or general feelings of well-being. For more information, take a look at our Counselling webpage

Mental Health

Adjusting to a new environment can be difficult for some students. Stress factors such as moving away from home, academic demands and financial worries can all impact on students’ mental well-being. The University provides support for students who may be experiencing any form of mental health difficulty. The Mental Health and Well-being Adviser is based in our Student Support and Well-being team and is there to ensure that students are appropriately supported throughout their time here to make sure they get the most from their university experience.

Disability Support

If your child has a disability, specific learning difference (e.g. dyslexia/ADHD/dyspraxia), long-standing medical condition, or mental health condition, advice and support is available whilst studying at Liverpool Hope. The Learning Support Team want to make sure that any support required is identified and set in place at the earliest opportunity. Ideally, any support required should be in place for the start of your child's studies with us. 

Learning Support Plans

If required, The Learning Support Team will produce a Learning Support Plan (LSP) for your child. The LSP provides information about your child's disability, how they learn, and it identifies any adjustments that will support them during their studies (e.g. exam access arrangements, permission to record lectures etc.). Once produced, your child will be asked to approve the content of their LSP and give consent for the information to be shared with their lecturers and other relevant university staff, such as the Exams Team, library staff etc.

You can Meet our learning support team and chat to them through our online chat platform unibuddy or by emailing sdw@hope.ac.uk
