Press & Media Relations

Part of the Directorate of External Relations & Development (ERD)

The Communications team strives to raise awareness of SOAS around the world by creating a strong media profile for the School. We target a range of media, including national and local newspapers, radio, television and online. We work to achieve this in close collaboration with staff and students at all levels across the School

SOAS is renowned for its expertise and the communications team would like to encourage more staff to speak to the media about their area of specialisation.

We can offer advice on whether your research or story is of interest to the media and put together targeted press releases. We can also organise informal media training to prepare you for interviews.

Services provided include
  • Crisis Management
  • Media Liaison
  • Public Affairs
  • Speech Writing
  • Stakeholder and Community Relations
  • Branding
