Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

Congratulations on your offer to study at the LSE. If you wish to accept your offer, keep reading!

Here’s what you will need to do in order to accept your offer and to prepare for your arrival:

  1. Set up your LSE account
  2. Receive your offer letter
  3. Fill in the Student Verification Form (SVF)
  4. Fill in the Financial Undertaking Form (FUF)
  5. And wait for Registration day!

Accepting your offer to study at LSE

1)Setting up your LSE account

For Undergraduate applicants:

The Admissions team will only send you an invitation to set up your account at LSE for You once you are offered a place at LSE.

This happens because your application is made via UCAS, while graduate applicants apply directly using the LSE online application system. So skip to number 2) and then have a look at 1) again.

For Graduate Applicants

Even before receiving your letter of acceptance to study at LSE, you will receive an invitation from the Admissions team by email, containing your unique link to set up your account in LSE for You. Please note that your username for this new account is your current personal email address.

As an applicant, you will be able to track the progress of your application through this account. In LSE for You, you will see your Graduate Application Tracker, where you will find the latest status of your application.

This account will be a public account for now; once you are registered as a student, it will be updated with the student roles and you will also then have a network account.

The username for your network account will be different from your email address. It usually is one word, such as your surname or part of it.

2) Receiving your offer letter

Congratulations! You have now received our offer to study at LSE! You will receive your offer at home, along with your offer pack. You will also receive an email informing you that an offer has been made to you.

You can then log in to LSE for You and see your offer. If it’s a conditional offer and you may need to upload more documentation to meet the conditions of the offer, or if it’s an unconditional offer you are ready to move on to preparing for your arrival at LSE.

3) Submitting your Student Verification Form (SVF)

Your Student Verification Form (SVF) is a form on LSE for You where you provide information for your Registration.

You confirm your personal details, such as name and surname, you upload the photo that will be in your student ID card, you also fill in the special needs form, as well as confirming that you accept the terms and conditions regarding the info that you just provided to us.

Here are two tips to submit your SVF successfully:

  • Resize photographs using Pixlr – it’s easy and quick, just follow the instructions on the page
  • Double-check that all the information is correct before submitting as it’s not possible to submit this form again

4) Submitting your Financial Undertaking Form (FUF)

Your Financial Undertaking Form (FUF) is a form on LSE for You where you provide information regarding the payment of your tuition fees. This is very important, and even if you are still waiting to know if you were awarded an LSE scholarship, you still need to confirm that you can pay your tuition in case you don’t receive any financial aid.

If you received financial aid as part of LSE’s funding scheme, such as the Graduate Scheme, you still need to inform us that you will pay the remaining tuition fees. You can also specify that you have applied for a student loan.

Please make sure that the form reflects your options as it won’t be possible to submit it again.

5) Wait for Registration day!

It seems that you have ticked all the boxes and you are all set up for Registration at LSE. At Registration, you are given your unique LSE ID card. After this, you can set up your network account on campus.

Using your new username, you are now able to log in to all LSE tools and systems meant for students, such as your LSE email and inbox. And soon you will have to make your course choices on LSE for You.

If you are a new student at LSE, we will be helping you through every step of the way. So subscribe to our blog for upcoming posts on your first steps at LSE.
