What to bring to Campus Enrolment

Information on what to bring to campus enrolment for taught students starting a new programme at LSE

 

a passport

When you campus enrol we need to check that you have valid permission to study at LSE.  If you are campus enrolling on a taught (non-executive) programme you must bring your registration pass AND the documents listed below.

Executive MSc students will not receive a registration pass so should instead bring their offer letter.

Students from the UK 

  • Your Passport
    A driving licence does not verify nationality and is therefore not sufficient for campus enrolment purposes.

UK citizens who do not hold a passport can campus enrol with alternative documents but this will take significantly longer. If you are registering without a passport we will need to see the same combination of documents as required for a DBS application (any route is acceptable).

Students from EU/EEA countries

  • Your Passport or National ID Card
    A driving licence does not verify nationality and is therefore not sufficient for campus enrolment purposes.

Executive Masters Students with Short Term Study visas

  • Your Passport which must contain a short term study visa.

Depending on your nationality Short Term Study visas can either take the form of a stamp or a vignette (sticker). Fore more information please consult the ISVAT Information Sheet.

Students with Tier 4 (General) visas

  • Your passport
  • Your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)
  • Your UKVI decision letter/email confirming your Tier 4 visa has been granted.

Your BRP will show the LSE sponsor licence number and should be valid for the full length of your programme. 

You must attempt to collect your BRP before coming to campus enrol. However, if the post office do not have your BRP then we can temporarily enrol you without it, providing you can show us the decision letter from the UKVI confirming the full period of leave.  You will then need to enrol again once your BRP arrives.

If you have just completed a previous programme at LSE, you will need to apply to extend your stay in the UK within 6 weeks of campus enrolling for your new programme or before the end date of your current visa, whichever is sooner. 

Tier 4 Students who enter the UK via the e-Gates

From May 2019, the following nationalities are usually able to use the e-Gates at the UK border:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Japan
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • USA

If you are an e-Gate national, your passport will not be stamped upon entry to the UK.  Please print either a copy of your boarding card or your flight details as evidence of your arrival date in the UK. You will need to bring a hard copy of either of these documents to show staff at campus enrolment. 

If you enter the UK when your Tier 4 visa is valid, then your visa will be activated simply by going through the e-Gates or speaking to a Border Force Officer.

If you enter the UK before the start date of Tier 4, you will only be entering the UK as a tourist and you will be unable to campus enrol for your programme.  You will need to leave and re-enter the UK on your Tier 4 visa after its start date in order to activate it. It is not possible to automatically switch from being a visitor to Tier 4 from within the UK. You do not need to travel home to do this, you can simply travel to Europe (but not the Republic of Ireland). However, you must re-enter the UK when your Tier 4 visa is valid.

Students with a Tier 4 application in process in the UK

  • Your Passport
  • Your previous visa 
  • Printed evidence that you have made an application for a Tier 4 visa sponsored by LSE. You can do this by providing a copy your online application document confirming the visa category you have applied for, payment has been made and the date the application was submitted or a printed copy of the email confirming your Tier 4 visa has been granted. We cannot accept evidence shown to us on a phone.  

You will also be required to sign a declaration confirming your application details.

Students with Tier 2 visas

You can only campus enrol using a Tier 2 visa in certain situations, such as when you are studying part-time.

Students with Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)

  • Your passport
  • Evidence of your Indefinite Leave to remain
