In the second year of undergraduate study (for some in first year), students will now have the ability to choose some of their courses. As their Academic Mentor, students will be coming to you for advice on what to take. Therefore, it is important that you have a good knowledge of the content of courses available to your students. This can help students make informed decisions and increase their likelihood of a successful and enjoyable academic year. Students will make their decisions through LSE for You. Here is how the course selection process usually looks:
1. You discuss course choice with your students and take note of their preferences.
2. You advise your student to enter the choices into LSE for You as soon as possible.
3. You then check LSE for You and approve the choices if they are within the programme regulations.
4. If a student chooses an unlisted course (e.g., one from outside the programme regulations), you should add comments to justify the approval of the course. The Departmental Tutor will also need to approve the course choices in these circumstances.
5. You shouldn’t approve any course choices that haven’t been discussed with your student.
6. Students can make further changes until the system closes, and you will receive an email to approve each of these changes.
7. A timetable will be automatically generated in LSE for You by the advertised date, usually at the end of week 3 for undergraduates and week 2 for postgraduates.
If a student has a timetable clash, their timetable won’t appear on LSE for You. They will have to make appointments to their selection or complete a timetable class approval form, available from the Departmental Tutor.
