Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

We would like to welcome all our new undergraduate and postgraduate students to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. We excel in cutting edge research and offer a wide choice of study programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The University of Liverpool's Welcome Week 2018 (Freshers' Week) begins on Saturday 15th September 2018, one week before the official start date of term. Induction activities and registration will take place within each department in the Faculty across the week. Please see the departmental links to your right for further information about induction activities and registration in your subject area.

Registration as a Student

Registration for all students will take place during Welcome Week.

Your School will help you to complete the following steps:

  • PC Registration - You will need to confirm your arrival by logging on to an on Campus PC. Please remember that you are not fully registered at the University until you have completed both Financial Registration and Academic Registration.
  • Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) Collection  (International Students Only) - Your BRP must be collected within 10 days of arriving in the UK; this will be either from a post office branch detailed in your decision letter or from the BRP distribution centre on Campus (please note that you must take your decision letter and passport) with you when collecting your BRP. If you do not collect your BRP within 10 days of arrival in the UK, you may be subject to a financial penalty or cancellation of your leave. You will be unable to complete your registration or collect your student card until you have collected your BRP.
  • Visa/ID Document Checks - (International Students Only) - You will need your original passport and Biometric Residence Permit (BRP).
  • Academic Documentation - (International Students Only) - If you provided certified copies of your academic documentation you will have been asked to provide your original documents during registration. You will need to provide original copies of degree Certificates and Transcripts
