Registration

 

What happens during your first week at the School?

The first week of the programme includes the School's main registration sessions on Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th September 2017 and a compulsory orientation programme  for all new students in order to introduce them to the School and their chosen degree programme. 

Additionally, an International Student's Welcome event is scheduled for Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd September 2017. Please note that this additional programme is primarily aimed at non-UK resident students and the content is designed accordingly. However, all students are welcome to attend if they wish to visit the School in advance of the main orientation programme  and sit in on some of the sessions or attend the social events. If you are interested in attending, you can register online.

Completing your pre-registration

Prior to the School’s registration sessions, all new students will be sent a personalised invitational email containing a unique link to our online pre-registration portal. All new students are required to complete the pre-registration task prior to arriving at the School.

If you are unable to complete the pre-registration task in advance, you will be asked to do so upon arrival at the School using one of our computers. However, in doing so, you may experience a delay in receiving your student ID pass. We therefore strongly recommend that you complete the pre-registration task in advance of arriving at the School to avoid this delay.

If you have not received your personalised pre-registration email, or if you have any issues completing this task please feel free to contact the Registry directly: enrolment@lshtm.ac.uk.

Where do I need to go to complete registration?

The School’s registration sessions will take place in the School’s Library in the Keppel Street building. Please check the orientation programme  for details of the timing of your programme’s registration session.

Please note, continuing part-time taught Master’s and full-time/part-time Research Degrees students are not required to attend the School’s registration events.

What happens when I arrive to complete registration?

Each degree programme has an allotted registration slot throughout the day. Please check the Orientation Week Timetable for details of the timing of your programme’s registration session.

Upon arrival in the Library, providing you have completed the pre-registration task and uploaded a suitable photo for your ID card, you will be invited to collect your ID card from the collection desk. Following this, you will be asked to join the queue to complete registration.

If you have not completed the pre-registration task prior to your arrival, you will be asked to do so at the IT support desk in the Library, prior to joining the queue to complete your registration.

 

How do I complete registration?

Each degree programme has an allotted registration slot throughout the day. Please check the Orientation Week Timetable for details of the timing of your programme’s registration session.

During registration, Registry staff will check that you have satisfied all the requirements of the conditions of your Offer of Admission, including the arrangements for paying tuition fees, and check that you have completed the pre-registration task.

Once this process is complete, we will verify your ID (passport or EU identity card) with the details you have provided during pre-registration.  

Please ensure that you bring the following items in order to complete registration:

  • Any outstanding documentation as stated in your Offer of Admission (eg. original qualification certificates, evidence of English language qualifications, original evidence of financial support,)
  • Your Passport(s) and visa, if applicable (we need to check your full legal name, date of birth and nationality/immigration status).
What happens if I miss my Registration Session?

Students who miss their dedicated Registration Session will be able to register in the Welcome Zone from Wednesday 27th September 2017 until Friday 29th September 2017, or in the Registry after this date.

Where original documents are required, am I allowed to bring photocopies or scans only?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept photocopies or scans of original documents, as we need to verify these against the original version(s).

When should I pay my tuition fees, what do I do if I have a US loan and how can I request a receipt?

Tuition fees should be paid in full by Monday 25th September 2017. Payments instructions can be found on our website or with your invoice.

If you have yet to receive a tuition fees invoice please contact fees@lshtm.ac.uk.

US Federal Loan students will be contacted individually by our Student Finance team once their disbursement has been processed.

Tuition fee payment receipts can be requested from 13th October 2017 onwards - please contact fees@lshtm.ac.uk.

Can I start my degree programme if I have not achieved the required English language test score?

Unfortunately, students are not permitted to register at the School unless they have provided original evidence proving that they have achieved the School's required English language test score. 

If you have not achieved the required score, you should contact the Admissions team (admissions@lshtm.ac.uk) immediately.

Students who have not met the School's minimum English language test score are strongly advised not to attempt to travel to London, as they will not be permitted to register at the School and may be refused entry at the UK border.

When can I access the School's IT services, email account and attend classes and lectures?

Providing the pre-registration task has been completed in full, students will be able to access the School's IT services and email systems from the 25th September 2017 onwards.

Students who do not complete pre-registration by this date may experience a slight delay accessing these services until the registration processes are complete.

Upon completion of the School’s registration process, students are permitted to attend classes and lectures.

What happens if I am unable to arrive by the 25th September 2017?

If you are unable to arrive at the School by Monday 25th September 2017, you should contact our Admissions team (admissions@lshtm.ac.uk) as soon as possible, stating the reasons for your late arrival and your expected arrival date.
