Student support at the University of Liverpool International College
The University of Liverpool International College has a dedicated Student Services team to give you academic and wellbeing support whenever you need it, leaving you more time to focus on enjoying your time abroad.
Our support at every step of your journey
Support at the International College
Throughout your time at the International College, you’ll always have someone to turn if you have any issues or questions about your course or general life abroad. Our Student Services team are trained to give advice and guidance to international students, so you can make the most of your time in Liverpool.
Social activities are a big part of College life, and our Student Services team put on a variety of events for students. You can visit galleries and museums, see football matches, experience cultural food nights and even get involved in karaoke sessions — all great ways to socialise and meet new people!
If you’re coming to study with us and you’re not yet 18, we’ll help you arrange a legal guardian. They will act as a 24/7 emergency contact, and will keep in touch with you throughout your studies.
We want to make sure that students with disabilities, medical conditions or potential complications receive any additional support they may need during their time with us. Let us know as soon as possible if you think this applies to you, and we can make sure your needs are met during your studies.

Any other questions
Will there be a Welcome Week when I arrive?
The first week of term will be Welcome Week, giving you (and your parents or guardians if they are with you) an opportunity to meet your teachers and classmates. You can take a tour of the University of Liverpool campus and facilities, and join social activities to help you meet new friends. We will also help with practicalities, such as registering with a doctor and finding the local supermarket.
Is there extra support before I progress to my degree?
Once you’ve completed your degree preparation course, we’ll still be here to support you as you make the transition to degree studies. This includes the option to take Pathways Extra, an online resource for students who have finished their degree preparation course, to help them prepare for starting their degree and develop additional employability skills. Find out more about Pathways Extra.
What if I don’t meet degree requirements on my course?
Our degree preparation courses are specially designed for international students, and helping them get ready for university in the UK, so our degree progression rates are very high. However, if you aren’t able to start your chosen degree after successfully passing your course, you can make use of our University Placement Service, which guarantees you a place at a UK university.
