The process of registration is very straight forward but has a number of key steps which you must follow to make sure you choose the right course. We've tried to speed things up again this year, by having more 'Group Information Sessions' which replace the need for an individual needs analysis for certain courses.
Please note; you only need to have a 'general' idea of your level. To make it even easier for you there are really only two paths to follow (see bullet points below) and if you need further guidance our step by step video guide on how to register explains this in detail.
If you have never studied the language before then follow the 'Register' link (see courses listed below) next to one of the Level 1 courses. This will take you to a step by step guide on how to register for Level 1 (Absolute Beginner) courses.
If you have studied the language before then follow the 'Register' link (see courses listed below) next to any of the other courses (i.e. Level 2-Level 5). This will take you to a step by step guide on how to register for courses other than Level 1 and the Needs Analysis process involving a 1-2-1 appointment with a member of the Language Team for that particular language.
There is an exception to this general rule of course. German Level Two (Standard). For this particular course you will be directed to the Level 1 information sessions on clicking the 'Register' link.
LSE students and staff can start the registration process from 22 September 2014 onwards
LSE Alumni and current University of London students from 6 October 2014 onwards
Anybody else from 13 October 2014 onwards
Classes begin the week commencing 3 November 2014 (week 5 of the Michaelmas Term) and most run during term time for 20 sessions.
PLEASE NOTE: Registration remains open until 14 November 2014 but some classes will be full well before then so please come early to book your place on a course.
If you have taken one of our courses before, passed the assessments for that language and level you will still need a needs analysis I'm afraid. Sorry...our language teams insist, so please follow the process below.
Non-current LSE members
We are obliged to check if you are eligible to study in the UK.
Therefore, if you are not a current LSE student or LSE member of staff who is able to show a valid and current university ID you will need to bring proof of this eligibility with you when you come to complete your registration.
For EU citizens this will mean your passport or national identity card. For anyone else you will need to bring your passport with a valid visa showing eligibility to study for the FULL duration of the course.
You will need to show this proof when you come to complete your registration.
We will not be able to register you without this proof.
