Enrolment & Orientation
What is enrolment?
Enrolment is the process through which you officially become an LSBU student. There are two-stages to the enrolment process.
We will send you an email with instructions about how to log on and complete online pre-enrolment.
It consists of six tasks that must be completed. Our system will lead you through each task step-by-step—it couldn't be simpler:
- Update your personal details and confirm the course that you wish to enrol onto
- Confirm your qualifications (compulsory)
- Check your payment and funding options (compulsory)
- Upload a photograph for your LSBU ID card (JPEG please)
- Activate your LSBU IT and email accounts
- Get your arrival instructions for your face-to-face enrolment (compulsory)
Once you have completed online pre-enrolment, you will be sent a specific date and time for your face-to-face enrolment meeting and a downloadable programme of orientation activities.
This will take place on our Southwark campus and will involve you showing us your original
qualifications and identification documents. If you don’t bring the right documents we can’t enrol you, it’s as simple as that!
Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to bring with you:
- Proof of your qualifications for your course

- Some EU or international students may also need to bring other documents such as: marriage/civil partnership certificate, parent(s) EU birth certificate/passport, sponsor letter or financial notification or payment (if applicable) or other documents relating to residency.
If you do not possess the original documents needed, you must bring along a certified replacement. Please plan for this during your preparation.
