in the Language Centre

A pre-arrival welcome to students on our BSc International Relations and Chinese and BSc Language, Culture and Society programmes

Contact John Heyworth in the first instance, who is the programme manager for our BSc programmes, should you have any questions about anything.

Below is some information you will need for arrival and also to help you settle in.

How do I complete campus enrolment?

If you are a new student joining us this year please remember in-person campus enrolment is compulsory.

You will have aleady received communications from LSE about online pre-enrolment and what you need to do.

We have a Welcome site which is your guide to help you get ready for life at LSE.

You can also read through the New Student Programme Registration information to find out when your registration takes place and what documents you might need. 

We have listed the key dates for you in the Welcome section of our Language Community page.

Please remember to bring along your Campus Pass when you arrive at LSE for campus enrolment.

This pass will be emailed to you as a PDF along with information about its use and instructions to download it onto your phones before arriving on campus.

What can I do to prepare and find our more about my programme?

You can find out about LSE from the Welcome Site. The Welcome Guide is also available from here.

You can look through the programme regulations for your BSc.

We also have a 'Get LSE Ready' pre-sessional course and you will be able to access this once you have completed the first part of your Registration.

Our undergraduate handbook will also be available online in August. 

Keeping in touch: contacts and community

Space is always at a premium on campus. We have an exclusive study area for Language Centre BSc students in 20KSW called the The Huddle.

If you have not already done so please do not forget to to sign up for the Student Hub and follow the Language Centre page. We set up a group, each year, for each cohort. e.g. Language Centre BSc students 2022/23

We will regularly post key information on the Student Hub throughout the year including Language Community events.

You will also be able to make appointments to see teaching staff via Bookings on the Student Hub, see you timetable and events and much more.

What events does the Language Centre run during Welcome?

We have a number of meetings arranged for you.

You can find out more our Welcome events from Language Community pages.

As our degree programmes are joint degrees with either the Department of International Relations or Department of Sociology during your time at LSE you will also receive invitations to their events.

During the academic year we will also have a number of additional events and learning opportunities which we will promote and announce via the Student Hub.
