Tuition Fees 2020/21 Postgraduate

Please note that fees are payable in full at enrolment. Tuition fees should be paid in pounds sterling (GBP). A fee payment by instalment option is available to self-funding students undertaking on-campus degree programmes.

Please note that the fees below are for this academic year only. The fees go up each year therefore your tuition fee in your second & subsequent years of study will be higher.  Our continuing students, on the same degree programme, are protected from annual increases higher than 5%.  2 year full-time programmes who have 2 years of full-time fees will be subject to this increase

Some fee rates for students who enrolled on their degrees before 2019/20 are different - please see the Protected Fee Schedule 2019/20

The Government has guaranteed EU students, both returning and those starting in the 2019-20 session, that their tuition fees will remain at the Home/EU level for the duration of their programme of study at SOAS.

Students who are formally sponsored or funded by educational loans should provide evidence of funding for the relevant year before enrolment to fees@soas.ac.uk
