for continuing students

Most continuing taught students will be able to re-register online for their second or third years. Some students will also need to campus enrol.

Re-registration is the process where you confirm that you wish to continue with your studies, that you will continue to abide by LSE's regulations and that you will pay your fees. You'll also be asked to make sure that the addresses we hold on the system are correct. 

The majority of students will need to re-register online. You must complete this process before accessing on campus resources and teaching.

If you are an executive master's student, please contact your department for information about your re-registration process.

In addition to re-registration, some students will also be required to attend campus enrolment, so that we can check and verify their documents (passport and visa).

Please make sure you are aware of the Covid secure measures that are in place across LSE before you visit campus.  

Online Re-registration

If you are a continuing student or returning from a break in your studies you will have to re-register online. You will receive an email notification when it is time to re-register online for your programme.

Email notification will be sent to progressing IRDAP students after the release of IRDAP results in September. You can check publication dates on the Publication of Results webpage.

Email notification will be sent to Lent Term returners on, or just after, 6 December 2021.

At the end of the online re-registration process, you will receive access to online resources.

The online re-registration process will help to ensure that we have all the necessary and up to date information about you, including your current plans for arrival on campus.  As part of the online re-registration process you will need to:

  • Check and update, if necessary, your addresses, emergency contact details and the monitoring information that you provided when you applied.
  • Tell us when you will join us in London. Continuing students are expected to arrive in London for the start of term. However, some students may, exceptionally, not be able to arrive in London at the start of their studies due to coronovirus travel restrictions. If this were to affect you, we will support you by offering flexible arrangements at the beginning of Michaelmas term. Students should aim to be in London as soom as possible to join their programmes for in-person teaching and no later than 22 October 2021. 
  • Provide some additional information for the Careers Team – this is to help us better understand how we can best support you.
  • Provide some additional information about caring reponsibilites - this is to help us better understand caring responsibilities of the LSE student community in order to appropriately align our services.
  • Provide some information about your COVID-19 vaccinations - LSE is working hard to keep its community safe and to provde a world leading education for our new and returning students. We would be grateful for you could answer these questions as this information will help with the planning of any response required.
  • Confirm your acceptance of the updated Conditions of Registration. These have been updated since you originally accepted your offer and now include additional statements related to our response to COVID-19 and online teaching.
  • Register to vote.

Please remember that you must have cleared any debts before you can re-register. You should contact the Fees, Income and Credit Control Office to make arrangements to clear the debt before attempting to re-register.

Who needs to campus enrol?

To meet UK Home Office requirements some groups of students will need to attend campus enrolment, so that we can check and verify their documents, (passport, visa etc).

Double Degree Students 
Double degree students who are coming to LSE for the second year of their degree having studied at another institution will need to attend campus enrolment. This applies even if you have already been issued with your LSE Card. 

Students returning from Interruption

If you were on interruption for any part of the previous academic year you will need to attend campus enrolment. This is because the UK Home Office insist that we recheck your eligibility to study in person. 

If you were on interruption for any part of the 2019 academic year and did not campus enrol in the 2020 academic year you will also need to attend campus enrolment.

Enrolment is closed to all students due to return to their studies in Michaelmas Term 2021/2. If you were due to return in Michaelmas term and have questions about your re-registration, please contact the Registration team via the SSC enquiry form

Students returning following resits
If you were un-registered and taking re-sits in the previous academic year (because you failed to progress for example) you will need to attend campus enrolment. This is because the UK Home Office insist that we recheck your eligibility to study in person. 

Students with visas which are shorter than the length of your programme

If your visa is not long enough to cover the entire length of your programme then you will need to attend campus enrolment. We will make sure that you are aware of the steps you need to take to get a correct visa in place before we campus enrol you.

What do I bring to campus enrolment?

When you campus enrol we are legally required to check your eligibility to study in the UK. We do this by checking various documents. The documents you will need vary according to your nationality and immigration status. If you do not bring the appropriate identification documents we will not be able to campus enrol you. Documents must be originals.
