Programme Specification Archive

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) requires that higher education institutions produce programme specifications, a part of the quality management requirements at SOAS.

A programme specification is a concise description of the intended learning outcomes from a higher education programme, and the means by which these outcomes are achieved and demonstrated. Its primary function is to provide clear and concise programme information for a public audience, specifically prospective and current students. It makes explicit the intended learning outcomes in terms of knowledge, intellectual skills, subject-based practical skills and transferable skills. It helps students to understand the teaching and learning methods that enable these objectives to be achieved; the assessment methods that enable achievement to be demonstrated; and the relationship of the programme and its study elements to the broader national higher education context and to any subsequent career path.

N.B. The programme specifications enclosed below are non-current documents and are to be used for reference only. To view the latest programme specifications, please refer to the relevant programme pages.
