How to register for Mandarin

The process of registration is very straightforward with a number of key steps which you must follow to make sure you choose the right course

We have online course choice information, group information sessions and individual 1-2-1 appointments for certain courses to help you.

There are really only two paths to follow (beginners courses, or non-beginners courses). Our step by step video guide (below) on how to register explains the registration process in detail.

Important information for LSE Alumni

As these courses are delivered online this year we do not need to check if you are eligible to study in the UK.

  • Your online classroom will be accessed via Moodle. You should have an LSE public account. The public account is the one you received when you applied to LSE. Your username is the non-LSE email address that you used at that time. If you cannot remember your password you can reset it online. We will need to activate Moodle for you. Please email us, using the email address you used for your public account. Should you have any issues (i.e. you no longer have access to the email address you originally used for your public account), please email us.

Information on how to register for a Mandarin non-beginners course

If you have studied the language before please follow these steps.

  • This will take you through how to register for courses other than Level 1 including assessments to determine which course is right for you.

Taking the Language Level Assessment 

  • The first step is to take your Written test.

  • The second step is to book your 1-2-1 appointment.

  • The results of the Written test will be used during your 1-2-1 appointment with a member of our teaching team. Please make sure you have taken the test before your interview.            

  • Follow this link to register to take the test and then click on the 'login' option (top right hand corner) and you will be prompted to log on to the server. Use your Moodle username and password (current students and staff use your LSE username and password).

  • You will see icons for each language we teach.

  • Click on the appropriate language and you will see links to the test and also the 1-2-1 appointment slots.              

  • If you are not a current member of LSE and do not have an LSE public account you will need to request one of these which will allow you to log on to Moodle. Please send an email to Language.Centre.Course.Administration@lse.ac.uk with your full name and we will reply to you giving you a link and instructions on how to open an LSE Public Account to use LSE's 'Moodle' virtual learning environment.         

  • If you have taken one of our courses before, passed the assessments for that language and level you can contact your teacher directly and they can verify the course you should take this year. When you get a reply from them please carry on with the registration process below.
