When you register we need to check that you have valid permission to study at LSE. You will not be permitted to attend any teaching until you have formally registered with the School. 

If you are registering on a Full Time programme in August and September 2018 you must bring your pre-registration pass plus the documents listed below.

Executive MSc students should will not recieve  a pre-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 registration purposes.

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

Students from EU/EEA countries

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

  • 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.

  • Your passport
  • Your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP)

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

You should attempt to collect your BRP before coming to register. However, if the post office do not have your BRP then we can temporarily register 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 register again once your BRP arrives.

If you have just completed a previous programme at LSE, you will need to apply extend your stay in the UK within 6 weeks of registering for your programme or by 1st November 2018, whichever is sooner.
