2022/23 academic year

New students - online enrolment

Online enrolment (for new students) opens in mid-August 2022. If you've accepted an offer to study at LSBU, you’ll receive an email from in August or early September, containing all the information you need to enrol, as well as a log-in link for online enrolment. This will be sent to the email address on your record. Please note that the enrolment invitation emails are sent out in batches, so not everyone will receive them at the same time. If you have any questions about the process, please see our enrolment FAQs.

Welcome Week 2022/23

Welcome Week, including and Academic Induction, will take place from Monday 19 September 2022 to Friday 23 September 2022. If you have any queries regarding Welcome Week or Induction, please contact us via LSBU MyAccount or by using our Enquiry Form.

Returning students (re-enrolment)

Enrolment for returning students (also known as re-enrolment) takes place online, from August 2022. Once you've got your results from the previous academic year, we'll send an email to your LSBU address inviting you to re-enrol, along with a link to the re-enrolment portal. If you're taking re-sit exams, you'll get your email in September – once your re-sits are completed and you have received your results. For more information, please see the FAQ I am a returning student. When and how can I re-enrol?
