Re-Registration

for continuing students

Most continuing taught students will be able to re-register for their second or third years using the 'Registration for continuing students' facility in LSE for You

LSE Library

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. 

It takes place in September and most students are able to complete the process online.

 

Can I re-register online?

Most continuing taught students will be able to re-register for their second or third years using the 'Registration for continuing students' facility in LSE for You

However, some students need to re-register in person - for more details expand the section below.

If you have an outstanding debt to the school you may not be able to re-register online, or in person. You should contact the Fees Office to make arrangements to clear the debt before attempting to re-register.

When should I re-register?

Re-registration takes place in September. 

The facility becomes available for different students at different times and dates for different students. You will be e-mailed once you are able to re-register. Please do not try to re-register before you receive this email as the process will fail and/or present you with incorrect alerts. 

Once you receive the email you should try to re-register as soon as possible, and before 12 October 2018, after which the online re-registration facility will be switched off. 

If you fail to re-register then this will mean that you are not able to view your personal timetable, your student loan payments will not be made and if you have a visa this may be cancelled.

What if I can't re-register online?

To meet UK Home Office requirements some groups of students will not be able to re-register online.

If you cannot re-register online you should instead register in person at the slot for your programme as listed on the new student registration pages. There are also late registration sessions available. If you need to re-register in person you must bring your LSE ID Card, passport and, if applicable, your visa. 

Double Degree Students

Double degree students who are coming to LSE for the second year of their degree having studied at another institution during the 2017/8 academic year will not be able to use the online facility. This applies even if you have already been issued with your LSE ID Card. You should instead register at the slot for your programme as listed on the new student registration pages.

Students returning from interruption

If you were on interruption for any part of the 2017/8 academic year you will need to register in person. This is because the UK Home Office insist that we recheck your eligibility to study in person. You should register at the slot for your programme as listed on the new student registration pages and tell the person doing your registration that you are returning from interruption. You will not get a new LSE Card at registration, you should instead request one online just before your current LSE card is due to expire.

Students returning following resits

If you were un-registered and taking re-sits in the 2017/8 academic year (because you failed to progress for example) then you will need to register in person. This is because the UK Home Office insist that we recheck your eligibility to study in person. You should register at the slot for your programme as listed on the new student registration pages. You will not get a new LSE Card at registration, you should instead request one online just before your current LSE card is due to expire.

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 not be able to re-register online. You should instead re-register in person during the slot for your programme as listed on the new student registration pages. We will make sure that you are aware of the steps you need to take to get a correct visa in place before we re-register you. 

Students on Executive Masters programmes will be able to re-register online even if their visa is not long enough to cover the full length of the programme because there are separate visa verification checks in place. 

Students who are spending a year abroad

If you are due to spend 2018/9 abroad, at Sciences Po or another partner institution for example, then you will not be able to re-register online. You should instead register with the institution where you are spending your year abroad. They will then contact us and we will automatically update your status at LSE. 

PhD Students

PhD students are automatically re-registered as part of the progression process. 

Please contact the PhD Academy for more information.
