SOAS plays an active role in our local community in the heart of one of the greatest cities in the world. We take our responsibility as a facilitator of knowledge exchange seriously and work with local partners and initiatives to ensure we have a positive impact in our regions, our local community and the wider UK.
Public engagement at SOAS supports staff, students and the wider community in the following ways:
SOAS boasts a number of cultural events throughout the year (Concert Series, Inaugural Lecture Series) and is of course home to the renowned Brunei Gallery, part of Bloomsbury's Museum Mile. The Japanese Roof Garden (pictured) is accessible via the Gallery.
We collaborate with local organisations who share our values.

Our widening participation strategy and outreach helps ensure we make higher education accessible to a diverse population concerned with, and passionate about, the world we live in. It is vital to our mission in equipping a society for a multicultural Britain.
