A two-stage process: pre-enrolment and campus enrolment

Information on the Pre-Enrolment and Campus Enrolment process


The information on this webpage is for the 2022/23 academic year. If you have any enrolment queries regarding 2021/22, please contact the Enrolment team using the SSC Enquiry Form.

To become a fully enrolled student, all new undergraduate and study abroad students, and the majority of new postgraduate students, will be required to undertake a two-stage enrolment process: Online pre-enrolment and Campus Enrolment. 

Here you will find information about both processes and answers to frequently asked questions that you may have:

Online pre-enrolment

You will receive an email notification when it is time to pre-enrol online for your programme.

As part of the online pre-enrolment process, you will activate your LSE network and email accounts. Once you have completed online pre-enrolment and activated your accounts, you will have access to online resources and teaching after approximately one hour's time once our systems have updated. 

The online pre-enrolment process will help to ensure that we have all the necessary and up to date information about you. As part of the online pre-enrolment 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.
  • Provide some additional information for the Careers Team – this is to help us better understand what support we can provide for you.
  • Confirm your acceptance of the Conditions of Registration and Enrolment. These may have been updated since you originally accepted your offer.
  • Download your Pre-enrolment Pass that you can use on campus for temporary access when you first arrive.

Campus Enrolment

Campus enrolment takes place in-person and is where we will check your official documents, including passport and visa (if applicable). Documents must be originals.

Once you have completed campus enrolment, you will be issued your LSE Card, giving you access to campus and on-campus teaching and services.

Michaelmas Term starters: the main Campus Enrolment period will commence in September 

Lent Term starters: Information will be sent in December 2022.

If you have any questions or concerns about your enrolment for this academic year, please contact the Enrolment team using the SSC Enquiry Form.
