Overview

Celebrating 100 years of research and teaching excellence, SOAS University of London’s world-class scholars are ideally placed to provide the analysis and understanding of our rapidly changing world. 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; 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. Reputation for excellence: Students are drawn to SOAS by its international reputation for academic excellence, as well as for the opportunity to study in a lively and international environment with like-minded individuals who feel passionately about contemporary world issues. Diverse campus: Students 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. Additionally, more than 40% of programmes offer the opportunity to spend a year studying in another country. Careers that make a difference: SOAS students aspire to varied and ambitious goals. Whether it be developing a career as a UN diplomat, dreaming of staging a kabuki play, or championing human rights, SOAS develops the skills for students to excel in their chosen area when they graduate. SOAS students are encouraged to develop a truly global perspective and are uniquely placed to inform and shape current thinking about the economic, political, cultural, security and religious challenges in society. That is one of the reasons why they develop careers that make a real difference in the world. Flexible study options: Alongside its taught degrees on campus, SOAS runs a prestigious programme of online and distance learning courses. University of London qualifications are recognised throughout the world for their high standards, and SOAS is the largest provider of online and distance learning courses in the University of London’s International Programmes. All online and distance learning degrees are equal in standard to those taught on campus, and they have the advantage of allowing students to maximize their potential whilst fitting their studies around their professional and personal commitments.
