Advice from ISIS

Individual advice

ISIS run a regular drop-in service for LSE students to answer quick questions about immigration. Alternatively you can e-mail us with your question.  Please don't do both because it is usually the same person at drop in who answers the e-mail messages (there are only two full time members of staff in ISIS).

Tier 4 applications - we cannot check your form during drop in.  If there are scheduled workshops, please come to a workshop for advice.  If there are no workshops, come to drop in to request an appointment or e-mail us.

When and where is drop-in?

There is an ISIS drop-in session every week day during the Michaelmas and Lent terms and every Tuesday and Thursday during the Summer term and LSE vacations.  The drop-in sessions take place between 1.30 - 2.30 at the Student Services Centre reception.

How do I sign up for a drop-in query?

 To ensure we are able to see as many students as possible during peak periods, there are 12 time-slots available during drop-in.

  • Choose a five minute time-slot on the sign-up sheet at the Student Services Centre.
  • Complete your details on the sign-up sheet in block letters.
  • If you have multiple or complex questions, we may ask you to make an appointment or to complete our web query form.
  • Please arrive on time for your allocated time-slot.  If you are late you may be asked to wait until the end of drop-in or to book another time slot at the next drop-in.
  • If there are no times available on the day, we may ask you to book in advance for the next drop-in session or send us a query through the web query form.

E-mail advice

We will reply to your message within three working days (five working days during the summer) so if your question is urgent, please come to our drop in service.  (It helps us if you choose either drop in or e-mail - please don't do both.)
