Why Study Abroad at SOAS?

Thank you for your interest in studying abroad at SOAS! We welcome you to join our growing Study Abroad and Exchange Student Programme.  

We offer undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to study at SOAS for either a half or full year and transfer credits back to their home university. 

In addition to dedicated pastoral support and care, you will be fully integrated into the SOAS student body– both academically and socially.  Upon completion, stay connected with us via our global network of alumni.  

What can I study?

Study Abroad students can choose from over 400 courses and build a unique programme including both traditional disciplines and specialist courses across each of our three Faculties - Arts & Humanities, Law & Social Sciences and Languages & Culture. See our Study Abroad Course Finder for more information.   

How to Apply

We welcome Study Abroad applications from both undergraduate and postgraduate students.  We also accept Exchange student applications from our partners in Japan, Korea and India as well as universities throughout Europe via our Erasmus program.  See our Entry Requirements and How to Apply for more information.
