SOAS–Korea University Dual Masters Programmme

SOAS is delighted to offer a postgraduate Dual Degree Programme in collaboration between the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) at Korea University (KU) and the School of Finance and Management at SOAS.

Commencing with the 2021/22 academic year, the SOAS-KU Dual Degree Programme establishes a unique postgraduate pathway in the fields of international studies, business and management, providing graduates with two Masters degrees through study at each of SOAS and KU.

Students may combine the following degree programmes at each partner university through joining the Dual Degree Programme:

While KU Masters programmes are ordinarily two years in length, students of the Dual Degree Programme will instead be able to complete each of a KU and SOAS Masters degree programme in a minimum of two years, depending on the student’s preferred pathway.

Students can choose to commence their Dual Degree programme at KU or at SOAS. Students that choose to begin at KU will complete Year 1 of the KU Masters Degree and then complete the full 1 Year Masters Degree at SOAS.

Alternatively, students can complete the Masters Degree at SOAS (1 Year) and then join Year 2 of the chosen Masters Degree at KU.

Students registering for the Dual Degree Programme are also eligible to receive a generous scholarship against normal SOAS and KU international tuition fee rates in their respective second year of study. For example, students that begin at KU will receive a discount on their SOAS tuition fees, and those beginning at SOAS will receive a discount on their KU tuition fees.
