International Students Information

This section contains details for our International Students.  There is a specific Orientation Day during Welcome Week, which you are encouraged to attend.  

On the following pages, you will also find other useful information to assist you in commencing your studies with us.

International Students' Orientation Day - Monday 23 September

International Students’ Orientation is specifically designed for International students coming to SOAS for the first time.  Although this is an optional event, we really recommend that you attend – it is a valuable introduction to SOAS life and it provides essential information on practical matters such as banking and immigration.  It is also an excellent opportunity to meet other International students in a relaxed and social atmosphere.


This event takes place at Logan Hall in the Institute of Education, which is next to the SOAS Russell Square campus.  


Please see downloads to the right for schedules.

Information Fair

As part of this day, there will be an Information Fair where you will be able to find out more about support services at SOAS, meet key staff and other useful contacts.  This will be an informal session and you will have plenty of opportunities to ask any questions you may have.
