SOAS University of London


Postgraduate Virtual Open Days

Virtual Open Days at SOAS

These events will allow you to learn more about our academic programmes and the SOAS student experience. 

You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have in a live chat with academics from your programme.

In these uncertain times, we want to reassure you that SOAS is looking forward to welcoming new and continuing students in September 2020.

We’re delivering all of our teaching, assessment and support for current students online for the remainder of the year - and we’ll be ready to start the new academic year in September.
