Application Instructions

Please note that we will only be able to accept students who have exam results which meet or are very close to our published entry requirements. We consider the whole application; full academic profile, personal statement, references and any other information available so having grades which meet the published requirements does not guarantee that we will be able to make you an offer.

Finance

It is important to tell Student Finance as soon as possible that you will be studying at SOAS, and be sure to use the generic degree title. More information on degree titles and other funding queries can be found on our finance pages

What is Clearing and Adjustment?

Clearing allows students who are not holding a university place to explore the options available to them to find a programme for 2018. It gives students the possibility of seeing if there are degree programmes with vacancies which may be suited to them. It also allows students to make late applications so if you have only recently decided you are interested in coming to university in 2018, it is not too late.
 
Find out more about Clearing by reading our student story on our blog.
 
Adjustment allows students who have achieved better higher than expected results to upgrade to a different degree. The Adjustment option is not available through UCAS until 16th August but if you have already achieved results which are better than you expected you can start looking at the options available to you now.
