Class Change Requests

Information for undergraduate students

Undergraduate classes are automatically allocated centrally by the Timetables team using the schools central software.

Students may only request to change timetabled classes in exceptional circumstances and a number of departments have restricted class changes for practical reasons.

You can apply to change class group in LSE for You by selecting the option 'Change Class Group' which appears within the 'Selection of Courses' tab.  You must include all relevant dates and times in your request e.g. if your class change request is due to a recurring medical appointment, please list all days and times that you cannot make.

All requests to change class group must be approved by the Departmental Tutor of the department responsible for teaching the course.  You may be asked to provide documentary evidence to support your request (such as proof of medical appointments), so please consult your departmental website regarding what is required in making a class change request before submitting the request online. 

If your request is approved, an email confirmation will be sent to your LSE email address on behalf of the Departmental Tutor.  The revised class details will be posted on your personal LSE for You timetable within five working days. 

Class sizes are carefully monitored. For this reason, you must attend the class to which you have been allocated, and is shown on your personal timetable.  Even if you request a class change, you must continue to attend the class to which you were originally allocated until your change is authorised. A warning email is automatically generated if a student is marked absent from two consecutive classes. Your class teacher will advise you if your name does not appear on his/ her class register. 

While we strive to accommodate students' needs and outside obligations, we are unable to allow students to join full classes.
