Get a taste of online teaching at SOAS with one of our Masterclasses.
We put on a series on live Masterclasses in June - and now you can watch the recordings on demand in your own time. Taught by SOAS academics, these are tasters of what a real lecture at SOAS would be like. Our Masterclasses cover a range of topics -- watch as many as you like, maybe even some not related to your chosen programme. These are a great way to learn something new, find out more about our SOAS lecturers and experience online teaching before September.
