New Student Registration

for General Course Students

When to register, where to go and what to bring with you



Registration dates for students starting in 2018 will be published here in early 2018.

We expect you to register on time, however we also recognise that this may not always be possible. If you expect to register late please first make sure that your department is happy with late registration you can then attend one of the following dedicated late registration sessions.

Registration should take around one hour to complete but times do vary depending on how busy we get. 


Main registration for new General Course students takes place on the Ground Floor of Clement House. 

Late registration Sessions take place in the Student Services Centre, on the Ground Floor of the Old Building. 

To find out where registration is taking place is please visit Maps and Directions.

What to bring

When you register we are legally required to check your eligibility to study in the UK. We do this by checking various documents. The documents you'll need vary depending on your nationality and visa (if applicable). If you do not bring the appropriate identification documents we will not be able to register you on your programme.

For details of what you need to bring with you please visit what to bring to registration

In accordance with UK Home Office requirements, the School is required to take a scan of ALL students' passports or national identity cards at registration.  

Can I register early?

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to register you before the allocated time and date. 

If you are planning to arrive at LSE before the start of term then please visit our Early Arrivals page for details of the support provided.

What if I am late?

We expect you to register on time. In exceptional circumstances it may, however, be possible for you to register late. 

All General Course students must have registered by Friday 19 October 2018. If you are going to register late you must contact the Dean of the General Course to discuss when you can register. 

Dates, times and locations for late registration sessions will be published here during Welcome Week.

Visit Late Arrivals for tips on settling in if you miss your scheduled Registration time.
