How to apply


To be considered for admission for a Taught Masters degree, SOAS requires a bachelor's degree from a prestigious institution with grades of 3.3/4. In addition, applicants should also refer to the individual programme entries in the Graduate Prospectus or postgraduate admissions pages, which may have additional requirements.  The International Foundation Courses and English Language Studies Centre (IFCELS) at SOAS offers a Pre-Masters programme for international students seeking entry to postgraduate degrees at British universities. 
Research applicants would normally be expected to have completed a Masters qualification equivalent to a UK Masters degree from a good university. 
Please contact Laura Hayes, if you have further questions.
