Before SOAS can confirm your enrolment you must have completed the following steps:
1. Completed the online enrolment
2. Paid your fees or provided evidence of funding
3. Selected the courses you wish to undertake
You do not need to attend a formal enrolment process to complete this process as all elements can be completed on-line.
The online enrolment system (Join SOAS) will open from 19 August 2013 and access will be granted in batches to ensure the details for each individual student is accurate. You will receive an email from the Welcome Week Team when it is available for you to access.
It is a statutory requirement that we collect your personal data and until we have received this information we will not be able to finalise your enrolment onto your degree.
Full details of what you need to do can be found here – please note that you need to complete this process by 23 September 2013.
1. Confirm My Details
2. Fee Payment and Funding
3. Sign up for My Courses (if you have not already done this)
Once each section is fully completed, you will see a green tick against it. Please be aware that the green tick will not show instantly on the Fee Payment & Funding sections as the details have to be processed through all of our systems. You will need to check back at a later stage to confirm that this has been successful.
If you have difficulty in completing this process, please call us on +44 (0) 207 074 5105 or email the Welcome Week team by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you.
Confirm My Details
This section will show you the programme of study that you will be following and you should enter this section of the site to verify and update the essential data that we are required to hold. Please ensure that you check the information carefully and complete each page of this section.
Within this section, you will be asked to confirm how you are being funded (self-funded, Student Loan, etc). This element of the section does not instigate any kind of payment, it is purely for our statutory returns.
Fee Payment and Funding
Within Join SOAS, you will be able to pay your fees using the SOAS Web Payments site. The following cards are accepted: Visa, Mastercard, Eurocard, Switch, Maestro, Solo and Delta.
Tuition fees are payable in full before or at enrolment at the beginning of the academic year.
If you are not in receipt of a loan or other form of funding (ie you are paying your own fees), there is a fee payment by instalment option available (for which you will be charged). The minimum tuition fee for the instalment option is £1500 and the fees are paid in two equal instalments. The first instalment is due before or at enrolment and an administrative charge of £150 will be added onto this first instalment.
You do not need an invoice to pay your fees. Please cite your 6-digit student ID number as a reference.
Alternatively, if you have applied for a student loan or you are being sponsored, you will need to provide us with your loan or sponsorship details. You should do this in advance of your enrolment, as we will not be able to complete the process without this evidence. You can provide this evidence by scanning and emailing your loan or sponsorship documentation to email@example.com, or you can bring the document to the fees office at Vernon Square (Monday – Friday, 10am – 12noon and 2pm – 4pm).
If you require further information about payment methods, fees, loans or sponsorship, please visit www.soas.ac.uk/fees.
Sign up for My Courses
This section is due to be open again at the end of August. All returning students must select their courses for 2013/14 online - you should have already completed this process, as directed by your Faculty. If you have any queries on this, please contact your Faculty Office.
If you are re-sitting exams in September, you will be able to select courses for 2013/14, however there will only be provisionally approved. Once your exam results are known your course choices for 2013/14 will then either be approved or rejected.
The status of your course choices will appear on your Join SOAS account. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have selected the correct number of courses and that they are all approved. Once you have completed your enrolment requirements and paid your fees, you will gain access to the BLE site, where your approved courses and relevant information about them will be visible.
If your initial choice has been rejected, you will need to log back onto Join SOAS to choose a different course. Please ensure that you remove the rejected course before you select a new choice and then resubmit.
If you need further information on what courses to choose, you should look on the relevant faculty web pages to find information about available course choices: www.soas.ac.uk/academic
If you need to change any course after it has been submitted online, but before the Faculty has approved your selection, you can do this by logging back into your account and removing and replacing the relevant courses.
However, if you wish to change a course after the Faculty have approved your selection, you will need to visit your Faculty Office. You will be provided with a form which you will need to complete and then obtain academic approval for the change. As you may need to meet with your Course Convenor and/or Associate Dean before the change can be approved, please ensure that you allow plenty of time to gain approval for a change of course.
Whilst SOAS cannot guarantee that all the courses offered during this sign-up period will be available in the 2013/14 session, every effort will be made to accommodate student choices, and the number of selections made to a particular course may be used to determine this availability. The information will also be used to inform the teaching timetable for 2013/14, although it may not be possible to guarantee that all student choices will be achievable due to the potential for clashes.
If your programme includes a Year Abroad during 2013/2014, you must still complete online enrolment. Please read the details found in the Year Abroad section.
If you are taking an intercollegiate course that does not form part of the published syllabus for your degree, you must check carefully to see if this is permitted. Full details can be found under the Intercollegiate Courses section.
If you have any questions about the process, please contact your Faculty Office by e-mail. You can also go to your relevant Student Support office between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday (during the vacations, the offices will be closed between 12noon and 2pm).
