How to apply for Study Abroad

Study abroad application process

Mandatory year abroad

All students with mandatory Year Abroad will be provided with relevant information on the process at the beginning of their degree at SOAS. All students will be supported throughout the process by their department, as well as the Study Abroad team.

Students studying abroad as part of their SOAS degree will be receiving credits that would be transferred on to their SOAS degree on their return, based on a transcript of records received from a host institution.

Optional year abroad

Students with optional Year Abroad will be informed about the process, guided through it and supported by both the relevant department and the Study Abroad team.
