Can I apply for a Repeat Teaching course change?
You may be eligible to request a course change when you apply for Repeat Teaching. This will be subject to your programme regulations and you should discuss this with your Department Tutor in the first instance.
You cannot ask to change a course via Repeat Teaching if you have already passed any of the assessment components of the course (such as a Lent Term exam or a summative essay).
The Repeat Teaching Panel will make the final decision whether the Repeat Teaching course change can be approved.
How do I choose my courses?
You do not choose your courses. They are input for you in reference to those listed and approved on your Repeat Teaching application. Course selections will begin to be entered on your student record at the end of August, and only after your Repeat Teaching has been officially approved.
If you wish to make any changes to the courses you have had approved you must email your departmental tutor to gain permission for the change. The Repeat Teaching Panel will need to approve any course change requests. Course changes will only be made in exceptional cases and only whilst the course selection window is open. Once course selection closes, no changes will be made. It is not possible to change courses in which you have previously passed any assessment components.
If you have any other courses with outstanding assessments that you will not receive Repeat Teaching, you will be automatically re-entered for these. Full details regarding this process are available on the re-entry webpage. Note that you are only eligible to receive teaching for Repeat Teaching courses.
Can I receive Repeat Teaching for a passed course?
No, if you have passed a course, you cannot attempt this assessment again and you are not eligible to receive Repeat Teaching for this unit.
Can I repeat a passed assessment component for my Repeat Teaching course?
If you have previously passed any assessment component(s) for your Repeat Teaching course, these marks will be banked and you cannot reattempt them. You can only attempt any assessments you have previously deferred or failed, provided you have attempts remaining.
Can I still access Student Finance? (UK and EU)
If you are paying Home fees and have previously received funding from Student Finance or want to apply for funding for your repeat year, you should contact Student Finance directly.
In order to be eligible for continued funding from Student Finance you will need to be registered for teaching. If you are going to be registered for fewer than four units, Student Finance still considers you to be engaged on a full time programme; so do not complete a part-time Student Finance application.
If you have already applied for funding through Student Finance before you realised that you had not progressed into your next year of study, they will need to be notified of the change. Student Services will notify Student Finance of your circumstances and confirm that you need access to funding as a student registered for repeat teaching. They will also confirm the change of fee, as applicable.
If you have any questions you should speak to Student Finance directly.
An approval of Repeat Teaching is not a guarantee of funding. You must satisfy the usual criteria.
What happens to my LSE scholarship?

Is there any other funding available for Repeat Teaching?
The Students' Union considers requests for financial assistance. They can potentially provide funding for students experiencing financial difficulties for a range of different reasons. One fund is specifically for students undertaking Repeat Teaching. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
