SOAS University of London

Support for SOAS Researchers

The Research Office supports funded research activity, knowledge exchange and research excellence at SOAS. We support researchers by:

  • disseminating information about research funding opportunities
  • giving support to academic staff making external research grant applications
  • costing projects and advising on funders’ terms and conditions
  • managing the funds of awarded grants
  • servicing the School’s Research Committee
  • administering the School’s research ethics policies and procedures
  • co-ordinating the School’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

All applications for external research funding must be submitted through the Research Office. Please see our How do I apply? page for more information.

If you are considering making an application please contact the Research and Knowledge Exchange Development Officer for your department at least six weeks in advance of the submission deadline.

For general queries, contact us on research@soas.ac.uk.
