    SOAS has a very free curriculum with many choices for students.

    Where many students pick a certain combination of modules we undertake to make sure that they are not clashed at the same day and time.

    Occasionally you may have to pick a different option if constraints on teaching staff hours and space mean we cannot move your current choice to a different slot.

    Your faculty office can offer support and advice on choosing and changing modules.

    The roomed timetable, including tutorials, is published at the beginning of September.
