Postgraduate Distance Learning

SOAS is the largest provider of postgraduate distance learning courses in the University of London’s International Programmes, with more than 3,600 students in over 160 countries.

We currently have three centres which offer a range of postgraduate qualifications: Master’s Degrees, Postgraduate Diplomas, Postgraduate Certificates and Individual Professional Awards.

These University of London qualifications are recognised throughout the world for their high standards and are equal to those taught on campus.

All our courses have been designed and written specifically for study by distance learners.
