You can use a Certificate of Registration to prove that you are a current, registered student at LSE.
We are only able to provide you with a Certificate of Registration after you have registered on your designated Registration date. If you are a continuing student, certificates of registration normally become available in September.
Certificates of Registration are for the current academic year and contain:
Your full name
Your student number
Your date of birth
Your term time and permanent addresses
The title and subject of your programme
The start and end dates of your programme
LSE's term dates
Your registration status (e.g. Registered, unregistered taking assessments)
Your mode of attendance (e.g full-time, part-time)
The Certificate of Registration can also be used for the following purposes:
Some banks will ask you for documentation to confirm your registration status. These letters will need to be addressed directly to the individual bank.
It may be possible to produce these letters for you before you have registered, providing your admissions documents are all in order. However some banks will not accept them until you are registered. You should check with your bank before requesting the letter.
