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

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 2019. 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 2019, 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 15th 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.
