AFLSE Student Connection Newsletter - September 2008



Here are a few items to consider before you leave for London:

CONFIRM YOUR FLIGHT TO LONDON IN ADVANCE Some flights from the United States to London Heathrow have been canceled recently due to economic reasons, such as flights leaving from New York City on Air India. As your day of departure approaches, be sure to confirm your status with the airline.

ARRANGE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT BEFORE LEAVING ARRIVING IN LONDON

Some Banks in England require proof of address in the UK before opening an account. This can be difficult for some students to arrange quickly. AFLSE has made an arrangement with Lloyds TSB to allow for account opening documentation to be started before leaving the US.

REGISTER WITH THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE (NHS) IN ADVANCE

LSE students can receive medical care from St. Phillips Medical Centre through the NHS. However, if you have never lived in the United Kingdom, you will need to register with the NHS. Do it in advance to ensure expediency if you become ill! Information available at http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/medicalCentre/nhsRegistration.htm

REGISTER AS AN OVERSEAS VOTER IN NOVEMBER ELECTION

Cast your vote in the Nov. 4 U.S. Presidential Election by registering as an overseas voter! Information available at http://www.fvap.gov/ The deadline is approaching!

GRAPHING CALCULATORS Many programs require that students bring their own calculators, often graphing calculators, for use in Quantitative Methods courses. These are much cheaper to purchase in the U.S. than in London, so consider purchasing one in advance. Check the requirements for your courses at http://www.lse.ac.uk/resources/graduateProspectus2009/departmentsInstitutesCentres/Default.htm
