The SOAS Student Handbook 2020 (pdf; 6mb) sets out important information which you need to know as a student before you begin your studies at SOAS. Do take a little time to see what is covered here - since you may find it helpful to refer back to the detail during welcome week and as you engage further with your studies at SOAS.
This Handbook is for students enrolled on any of SOAS’ undergraduate and postgraduate taught degree programmes and members of SOAS’ postgraduate research community.
In addition to this Handbook, you should also receive a specific programme handbook as well as module study guides at the start of each module.
The rules, regulations and policies contained in this handbook form part of the agreement between you, the student, and the School, which should act as a guide for you throughout your time at SOAS.
If you have any questions regarding any of the information included in this Handbook, please contact a member of the Weston Student Hub team, who are located on the Ground Floor of the Paul Webley Wing in Senate House. If you have a question pertaining to your programme of study, please contact your Departmental Support Officer, whose details can be found on the relevant department pages of the SOAS website.
