Student Services and Support

Support for students covers a range of different needs, not only around learning but also the support needed to come to college. Our friendly team will help you every step of the way to ensure your time in college is hassle free.

They can help with important things such as:

  • applying for extra funds for travel, food and childcare
  • enrolment and exam entry
  • help with a range of welfare and financial issues

The College provides specialist support for students with specific needs around learning and disability, including class support (students with medical conditions) dyslexia and specific learning differences, physical disabilities, hearing or visual impairment, mental health and personal care support.

Students enrolled on a higher education course (HE) course at the City of Liverpool College may be considered for a nursery place, should one be available, once allocation of places has been made to those studying on further education courses. College nurseries are open 38 weeks per year (term-time only).

For further details, call the College Information Line on 0151 252 3000 or email us at enquiry@liv-coll.ac.uk.

Disabled Students

All HE students can access a variety of college-wide facilities and services, including state-of-the-art learning resource centres and a range of health and wellbeing support.

The College welcomes applicants with disabilities and is proactive both in anticipating needs, and in making reasonable adjustments to ensure that disabled students are welcomed and treated fairly. You do not have to tell us about a disability, but we positively welcome disclosure at any point during your studies, as informing us will ensure that any necessary support from disability specialists or teaching staff can be put in place.

As a disabled student, you may be eligible for the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) which is a grant that can help to meet any extra course costs you may face as a result of your disability, an ongoing health condition, a mental health condition or a specific learning difference.

For more information, contact us at DSA@liv-coll.ac.uk or call us on 0151 252 3595.

 

Entrepreneurship and Employability

Develop your employability and entrepreneurial skills whilst studying.

Student employability starts with the College’s HE Strategy and is visible in a variety of aspects of the College’s higher education provision. The strategy prioritises development of students’ employability skills by working with local employers and professional bodies.

Employability is supported through the curriculum with opportunities for students to take part in work placements, internships and work-related activities. Support is also provided in securing employment through preparation of CVs, employability tutorials and interview skills. There is a dedicated employability area on the College’s virtual learning environment (VLE). The College also encourages teaching staff to be actively involved in industry and maintain current industry links.
