How to register

YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL OF STEPS 1-5 BELOW* IN THE ORDER SHOWN; ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE REGISTERED AT THE CLIE WILL YOUR PORTICO CHOICE(S) BE APPROVED BY US AS THE TEACHING DEPARTMENT (after being amended if necessary).

  1. Online (Portico)* – as soon as permitted: select the most CLIE appropriate language course unit on Portico (along with your other modules), using the Module directory there, or the course information here. Submit your selections as soon as possible (unless you have been advised otherwise), as we can always amend your selection later.
  2. Registration Form – from 11 SEPTEMBER 2017: complete a CLIE Course Units 2017-2018: MFL Registration Form (also available from a CLIE language tutor or the Course Units office).

For our BSL module please complete the CLIE Course Units 2017-2018: BSL Registration Form. Intercollegiate students must also complete and submit the UCL Intercollegiate Registration Form.
  3. Interview with a language tutor – from FRIDAY 22 SEPTEMBER 2017 to FRIDAY 06 OCTOBER 2017: come as soon as possible to the CLIE for an informal interview with a language tutor for the language you wish to study, who will assess your level using a variety of methods, and sign your Registration Form. Times are shown below; no appointment is necessary. 

    You must have an interview before you can register even if you are a complete beginner or have previously taken a course unit at the CLIE.

    BASc or IEP programme students: if you took a language module at CLIE in 2016-2017 AND have not studied the language over the summer then you do not need to come for a language interview.

  4. Timetabling – from MONDAY 02 OCTOBER 2017 to WEDNESDAY 04 OCTOBER 2017: each CLIE module is scheduled around the availability of those students who register to take it; you therefore MUST attend the timetabling session for your course to have an input in when your class is scheduled. You will be given the time of your timetabling session at the interview with a language tutor. Note: there is only ONE timetabling session for each course.
  5. Submit your completed Registration Form – at the end of your timetabling session: submit your completed Course Units 2017-2018: Registration Form (plus UCL Intercollegiate Registration Form if you are an Intercollegiate student) to the CLIE staff members.

    If you miss your timetabling session or are registering for a module with pre-scheduled classes please submit your registration form directly to the Course Units office.

    You will then be officially registered and we will approve your language course unit(s) on Portico* (after amending if necessary).

* Portico does not apply to intercollegiate students.
