New Student Checklist 2021

Before you join us there are a few important tasks you’ll need to complete

Online enrolment:

  • You can pre-enrol on our system, change your password and set a security system.
    • Task 1: You'll be asked to check and confirm your course, confirm your address, provide some personal data , upload your ID documents, and accept terms and regulations about fees and data protection.
    • Task 2: You may be asked to provide additional information regarding your qualifications, where you'll be living and to confirm your membership to the Student Union.

    • Task 4: You'll receive instructions for arrival to campus, how to upload your photo for an ID card, and how to enable your IT account.

Welcome Week

Welcome Week is a great series of events between 13-17 September for you to get to know the campus, meet your new classmates and explore clubs and activities you can get involved in as a student. From LSBU essentials for online learning, to joining sports teams and societies, you'll find something you like here. New students at Croydon and Havering will also have activities planned, and if you are an international student still travelling to our country, we'll have online activities for you too!

Induction and Timetabling

Induction for most students will take place the week beginning Monday 13 September 2021, and for most courses, teaching begin 20 September 2021. We'll send you an email with a personalised timetable closer to the date.

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. More details on how we're teaching this September are coming soon.

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.

Access to technology and campus services

Once you have been sent your login details, you'll be able to access e-resources, Office 365, Moodle (our Virtual Learning Environment), MyLSBU (our Student Portal) and your MyAccount.

Use your MyAccount to browse FAQs to common questions, chat to advisors, book appointments with your support team, and view your disability and mental health and wellbeing information in one place.
