Academic Development Directorate

Masters Student Support

The Learning and Teaching Team in the Academic Development Directorate offers a wide range of academic support, advanced skills training and development opportunities for Masters students at SOAS. Our training is designed to help get you started on your postgraduate studies and to support you all the way through to the end of your dissertation project.

As well as online support, we provide a programme of skills workshops covering themes such as postgraduate essay writing, critical approaches to reading, becoming an independent learner as a postgraduate and preparing for your dissertation. You can come along with any questions you may have about your studies to our Masters Q&A panel sessions run by experienced teachers or book a one-to-one tutorial session.

We also offer support aimed at helping you to get to grips with planning your time and managing your workload, presenting your work in seminars and workshops and lots more.
