Welcome checklistBefore you join us there are a few important tasks you’ll need to complete
Enrol at LSBU
We’ll be inviting you to enrol online from January, once you’ve accepted your offer at LSBU and had your place confirmed. Keep an eye on your emails for more instructions on how to complete your enrolment online. It’s important that you complete enrolment before you start your course.
During enrolment, you’ll be asked to:
Enrolment must be completed before you can start your course. Enrolling as soon as possible will allow you to create your LSBU email account and IT accounts, and access your teaching timetable. You’ll also be able to access some great student benefits, such as the NUS student discount card, and discounted London travel with a student oyster card.
Check your details: It’s important that we have the most up-to-date contact details for you. If your email address has changed since you first applied to LSBU, and you applied via UCAS, then please update your email address on UCAS. If you applied by any other route, please email the Enrolment Team.
Book your course induction slot
As a new student, you’ll need to take part in your course induction session to make sure you get your LSBU career off to a flying start. This is your chance to meet your academic team and fellow students, as well as find out everything you need to know about studying here.
Induction for most students will take place the week beginning Monday 18 January, with teaching commencing shortly afterwards. Keep an eye on your email for an invitation to book your slot. Need help? Our Student Life Centre team can also help you on queries relating to induction via email.
In addition to your course induction be sure to check out all of the fun activities we have planned for Welcome Week. From LSBU essentials for online learning to how to join our sports teams and societies - you'll find something for you here.
Arrange your finances
You need to get your finances sorted before you start enrolment, so you can concentrate on getting ready for your studies. If you are applying for a loan from Student Finance England and haven’t done so yet, then you need to do it now. There are different options available for funding, depending on resident status (home, EU or international) and mode of study - undergraduate or postgraduate.
View your timetable
For most courses, teaching begins in late-January. Your teaching timetable will confirm the exact start date.
Due to the current IT issues, your personalised timetable will be sent to your personal email and/or via Microsoft Teams by your lecturer. See Create your email and IT accounts below for details on using Microsoft Teams.

We’ve been working hard planning a blend of on-campus and online teaching during the academic year, taking great care to timetable sessions with your safety as the first priority. This means that we’ve tried to schedule on-campus sessions together where possible. More details on how we're teaching this January can be found here.
Academic calendar: LSBU’s academic calendar gives you the key dates of the academic year, including exam weeks, and the start/end dates of each semester.
Create your email and IT accounts
Whilst we deal with the IT issues caused by the recent cyber incident, we've had to operate a phased approach to grant you access to your online LSBU account.
Phase 1 - Invite to Microsoft Teams
Your lecturer will invite you to a Microsoft Teams group with your classmates. Microsoft Teams is available on any web browser and as an application for your smartphone or computer.
Phase 2 - Student ID number and Username
Once you have been sent your login details you'll be able to access e-resources, Office 365, Moodle and other online LSBU systems. If you need support accessing our systems please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
