Needs Analysis Interview

Step 1

The first step is to book your Needs Analysis Interview.

Current students and staff should follow this link to to book an appointment through Moodle. Click on the 'login' option (top right hand corner) and you will be prompted to log on to the server. Use your LSE username and password. The link will take you directly to list of available interview slots grouped by language. This is all within the Language Centre section of Moodle and is called 'Needs Analysis Booking'.

If you are not a current member of LSE you will need to set up an account which will allow you to log on to Moodle. Please send an email to with your full name and we will reply to you giving you a link and instructions on how to do this. Remember you can only do this after the appropriate registration start dates.

Step 2

If you have not done so already print off (or at least have a good read through) the Course Outline(s) for the course(s) you are interested in.

Step 3

Print off the Multi Purpose Language Assessment. Complete the appropriate one for you and bring it along to your Needs Analysis Interview. A member of the appropriate Language Team will then advise you on which class will suit you best.

Step 4

At the interview you will be given a Registration Form confirming your course choice.

Step 5

Pick the time of the class that you want (students: please try and find out when your core courses are taking place before completing registration to avoid clashes). Have a look at the MFL Certificate Course: Teaching Timetable (remember you'll need to select the appropriate module code which for Language Centre courses begins LN and also the class number). You can also follow this link to the Language Centre Registrations page to check availability for this class.

Step 6

Then to complete your registration come to the Language Centre Reception on the Ground Floor of 20 Kingsway (Monday-Thursday 09:30-18:30 or Fridays 09:30-17:00) to sign up and pay.

Step 7

You keep the Registration Form as it has information on the programme and also acts as your receipt (along with any transaction advice if you pay by credit or debit card). Please also take note of the Frequently Asked Questions section which has lots of useful information.
