Arrival and orientation

We encourage study abroad students to arrive for orientation the week prior to semester start, but if personal circumstances such as lack of accommodation in Liverpool does not permit this then we understand and you should inform your International Mobility Coordinator. For further information see the Enrolment webpages.

During orientation week you will complete your registration, enrol on modules, meet with your academic contact and be invited to a social by the Global Opportunities Team. The week will also allow plenty of time for you to familiarise yourself with the city and our university.

Once you complete your registration in Liverpool, you will be issued with your student card and will collect this when you arrive. You will need the card for accessing our buildings, printing and it can also be used in selected shops and restaurants for student discounts. You should always keep your student card with you during your time here.

Please note
Some international students are required to register with the police when they arrive.
