SOAS prepares for 2021 and beyond

4 January 2021

SOAS rose to the financial challenges of Covid-19 through a wholesale review of our curriculum, staff structures, controlling costs, cash management and seeking to grow our income.  This planned and sustained action taken by SOAS has meant the institution has successfully moved from an operational deficit in 2018-19 to a projected operational surplus forecast for 2020-21.
