Real world relevance

SOAS programmes are taught by respected specialists engaged in fieldwork and research, which influences both government policy and the lives of individuals across the globe.  SOAS scholars debate pressing contemporary issues such as human rights, development, migration, identity, legal systems, poverty, religion, and social change, and engage in a wide range of global research projects, which are shaping the culture, economics and politics of societies all around the world.

Passionate students

A SOAS student is typically passionate about their subject; opts to learn a second (or a third, or a fourth) language; loves to learn, to travel, to be surprised; and is interested and engaged with the world around them.

SOAS aims to add and enhance to these attributes by offering courses of study, which give students the opportunity to look at their subject(s) from multiple perspectives; to challenge preconceived ideas through debate with fellow students and tutors; and to overturn unexamined assumptions.

To this end, SOAS offers an extensive range of exciting courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and also masters degrees and diplomas by distance learning, foundation programmes for pre-university study, and a range of shorter language courses and summer school options.

More Info

Diverse campus

Undergraduates discover a fascinatingly diverse, lively and close-knit community on the SOAS’s central London campus, and friendly fellow students who share an intellectual interest in the international issues in which SOAS specialises.

SOAS is a place for those who want to expand their horizons and develop a deeper understanding of the world; for those who want to re-examine preconceptions and not just accept the traditional status quo.

Study opportunities

Degree combinations in law, politics, economics, finance, business, management, the arts, humanities and languages provide many options for study, in either single-subject or two-subject (combined) degrees.  Additionally, more than 40% of undergraduate programmes offer the opportunity to spend a year studying in another country.

For students where a language is not a core element of their degree, the Language Entitlement Programme (LEP) gives students the opportunity to include language learning as an extra activity entirely free of charge.
