Minimum entry requirements
These are guidelines only and do not guarantee entry. Each application will be judged on its own merits.
Students who have completed recognised international qualifications, such as the International Baccalaureate, A-Levels or AP examinations, will be considered for direct entry to undergraduate programmes. For more information, please view our undergraduate entry requirements.
SOAS will consider all applicants holding the equivalent of UK Lower Second-Class Honours undergraduate degree. For more information, please view our postgraduate entry requirements.
In addition, you should check the individual programme of study for any specific academic requirements.
Research applicants would normally be expected to have completed a Masters qualification from a good university.
English language requirements
Applicants whose first language is not English are normally required to provide evidence of their English language proficiency. Please check our English language requirements for accepted tests and alternative qualifications. SOAS offers English pre-sessional summer courses for those who do not meet the exact entry requirements which allow students to improve their language skills before beginning academic study.
SOAS offers a range of scholarships, bursaries and awards to support students, including the International Postgraduate Scholarship. There are other scholarships provided by the University of London, the British Government and other external organisations.
SOAS Careers Service
The SOAS Careers Service can help you to find volunteering opportunities and can provide information and advice on finding paid employment during your studies and after graduation.
There will be a number of jobs (both voluntary and paid) within SOAS itself (for example, in the Students’ Union or cafe) and you can look out for these opportunities through the Careers Service or via the Students’ Union.
There is a strong SOAS alumni network all over the world, if you would like to contact SOAS alumni in Turkey please visit SOAS alumni.
