Accredited Courses

Covid-19 update:
We are pleased to announce that SOAS Language Centre Diplomas will be offered fully online from September to December 2020. Term 2, January to March 2021, will also be fully online. From April 2021, depending on Government advice, teaching may combine on campus, online and blended learning.

SOAS Language Centre is one of the very few UK educational establishments offering accredited full-time programmes in Asian languages. Our courses in Communicative Arabic, Chinese and Japanese provide an accelerated way to gain mastery of a language that is accredited by the award of a widely-recognised SOAS Certificate of Higher Education. These courses were created over 20 years ago due to a demand from UK Government Organisations to provide a fast track and intensive method enabling learners to go from a complete beginner to an advanced level in order to communicate proficiently in the chosen language.

Before applying for one of these courses, please see our Terms and Conditions for All Accredited Programmes.
