UCAS Clearing and Adjustment 2018

SOAS continues to have a limited number of vacancies for well qualified students in clearing.

Have a look here to see the programmes we offer and if you wish to make an application please email providing all the information described in the Information for SOAS applicants section below.

Please note that we will only be able to consider your application if your exam results meet or are very close to our published entry requirements. We consider the whole application so having grades which meet the published requirements does not guarantee that we will be able to make you an offer.

SOAS offers both private and intercollegiate halls for our Undergraduate students. Many of our first year students also choose to rent private accommodation. Coming through Clearing, it's not too late for you to find accommodation you are happy with. You can find out more about accommodation options by visiting our accommodation page.


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. 

Programme spotlight: Global Liberal Arts

We have a limited number of places available on our BA Global Liberal Arts programme.

The BA in Global Liberal Arts at SOAS is for ambitious, intellectually curious students who don’t want to be tied down to traditional single disciplines. It’s a carefully structured inter-disciplinary programme which allows you to explore a range of subjects from arts and humanities to languages and social sciences.

The programme explores a range of subjects from arts and humanities to languages and social sciences. It will allow you to gain a sophisticated understanding of the world as a whole, including expert knowledge of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Graduates from the programme have gone on to work for a wide range of organisations, including blue chip employers in the public, private and third sectors.
