What Makes Us Unique:
Our Study Abroad and Exchange programme gives undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to study at SOAS for either a term or the full academic year, after which you’ll receive a transcript to transfer credit back to your home institution.
You are also able to design your own unique programme of study, which means you have the freedom to focus on a particular region, concentrate on a specific discipline or combine modules from across any of our academic departments.
