SOAS-Korea University Dual Degree Programme to launch from 2021/22

13 May 2021

SOAS is delighted to offer a postgraduate Dual Degree Programme in collaboration between the Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) at Korea University (KU) and the School of Finance and Management at SOAS.

Commencing with the 2021/22 academic year, the SOAS-KU Dual Degree Programme establishes a unique postgraduate pathway in the fields of international studies, business and management, providing graduates with two Masters degrees through study at each of SOAS and KU.

While KU Masters programmes are ordinarily two years in length, students of the Dual Degree Programme will instead be able to complete each of a KU and SOAS Masters degree programme in a minimum of two years, depending on the student’s preferred pathway.

Students can choose to commence their Dual Degree programme at KU or at SOAS. Students that choose to begin at KU will complete Year 1 of the KU Masters Degree and then complete the full 1 Year Masters Degree at SOAS. Alternatively, students can complete the Masters Degree at SOAS (1 Year) and then join Year 2 of the chosen Masters Degree at KU.

Dr Ben Hardy, Head of the School of Finance and Management, says:

"We’re absolutely delighted to announce this partnership. It cements a long-standing relationship between SOAS and Korea University; a relationship which spans both research and teaching. It brings together two institutions with truly global outlooks, enabling masters students to have a distinctive international experience. The SOAS MScs in International Business and Public Policy, Finance and Management take an international perspective, drawing on a wide range of examples and practices from around the globe. Students from Korea University will both benefit and contribute to this and we very much look forward to welcoming them to the SOAS family."
