Changing your Degree Programme

If you wish to change your degree programme, you will need to complete the degree transfer form. The final deadline for completion and submission of the degree transfer form is Friday 1st August 2014. Before you make any decision, you should read the section of the SOAS website on Interrupting, Changing or Withdrawing from a Course.

If you then wish to proceed, you will need to complete the Degree Transfer Form. You should complete your personal details and then complete sections 1, 2 and 3. The form should be submitted to the Registry Office for regulatory approval. Registry will then forward it to the relevant Faculty for academic approval.

The final decision will be made by the Registry, who will notify you of the outcome by email sent to your SOAS email account.

Please contact records@soas.ac.uk if you have any queries regarding your degree transfer.

Once you have received the approval, you will need to complete the online re-registration process, including selecting the courses for your new programme.

Please note that for postgraduate students, a change of programme may involve a change in fees. You will need to contact our Fees Team on fees@soas.ac.uk to enquire of any fee implications.
