Faculty of Arts and Humanities

Arts & Humanities Faculty Office

The first point of call for student queries is the Faculty Office (Student Support Office) in room 327. 

The Student Support Team oversee the registration of course options, tutorial allocations, Personal Advisors and all arrangements for assessments, exams and mitigating circumstances. They work as an administrative link between students and the academic teaching staff. The Student Support Office is also where students submit PG Dissertations, UG Independent Study Projects and other paper-based assessments. Students can review sample MA Dissertations and collect any test papers not returned in class.

Any email or phone queries can be directed to the specific Faculty Officer assigned to your department (see below), though general questions should be sent via the Student Information Desk.  Please log into SID at soas.ac.uk/sid or call 020 7898 4020

If you have been emailed with your SOAS IT Account, you should log into the online Student Information Desk and submit an enquiry.  
If you have not yet received your account details, please send an email to registrar@soas.ac.uk
