SOAS University of London


Undergraduate student services

A range of student services exist to help you during your time at SOAS. They provide an invaluable source of advice and support and are available to all students of the School.

Student Advice and Wellbeing

Student Advice and Wellbeing provides advice with finance, accommodation and immigration issues, multi-faith provision, support for students with Disabilities and Neurodiverse conditions, and support with mental health and personal wellbeing. 

Students' Union

All students can join and use the SOAS Students' Union, which offers a range of societies and social activities.  SOAS students can also join societies and teams offered by the University of London Union (ULU). 

Medical services

The University Central Institutions Health Service is located close to SOAS, and offers a wealth of experience in dealing with student-related issues such as study strain, stress, fatigue and exam nerves. All students are required to register with a doctor in London, be it the University service or another GP close to your term-time address.


The Careers Service supports SOAS students in every aspect of their career preparation; whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or researcher and in your first or final year. The Careers team: brings over 100 employers onto campus through events; maintains a library of information explaining how to get into the various graduate careers; holds lists of full-time and part-time vacancies and internships as well as postgraduate funding; runs a volunteering unit; and offers one-to-one guidance on applications, interviews and career choice. Although a wide range of careers is covered, particular emphasis is given to those jobs of most frequent relevance to SOAS students.
