Welcome checklistBefore you join us this September, there are a few important tasks you’ll need to complete
Enrol at LSBU
We’ll be inviting you to enrol online from August, 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:
- Upload two identification documents. This needs to be your passport and one other, which could include your birth certificate, driving license, EU national ID card or a utility bill or bank statement with the address that you have registered with us.
- Confirm how your tuition fees will be paid as an undergraduate, postgraduate or international student.
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 let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check your induction schedule
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 14 September, however induction for Teacher Training will be from Tuesday 1 September.
Details of your course induction session will be emailed out in late-August.
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 the week beginning Monday 21 September, however Teacher Training students will begin from the week commencing Monday 7 September.
Once you enrol, you’ll be able to access your teaching timetable (available from September).
Please note that some programmes only release your full timetable once you have attended induction and selected your option modules (where relevant).
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
Completion of the online enrolment process will allow you to create your official LSBU email and IT accounts.
All official University correspondence and course information will be sent to your LSBU email account rather than your personal one so it’s important that you check this at least twice a week.
Your LSBU IT account will also allow you to access your teaching timetable, and our student intranet portal, MyLSBU. Please follow the instructions as part of online enrolment to create your account.
