Foundation College


The Foundation College at SOAS provides courses leading on to further study. 

Most of these routes are to SOAS' undergraduate courses, but we also have some pre-Masters courses too. Part of our work clearly involves equipping you with the skills for further study - be that writing, close reading, working with sources, or for some international students working on language skills.

What we are proud to do at SOAS though, that sets up apart, is offer Foundation Courses with lots of exciting, stimulating and broad academic content. Much of this asks students to challenge the status quo, to think beyond preconceptions and offer their own opinions and well-researched views as to how things might be different in the future. Take a look at some of the modules in either Foundation Year or IFCELS to see what we mean.
