Fees are payable in full at enrolment and 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. Fees go up each year, therefore your tuition fee in your second and subsequent years of study will be higher. Our continuing students, on the same degree programme, are protected from annual increases higher than 5%. Two 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 2020/21 are different - please see the Protected Fee Schedule 2020/21
The Government has guaranteed EU fee status students, both those that returned and those started in 2019/20 and 2020/21, that their tuition fees will remain at the Home/EU level for the duration of their programme of study at SOAS.
However, new students starting in and from September 2021 that have EU status will be classified as Overseas.
Students who are formally sponsored or funded by educational loans should provide evidence of funding for the relevant year before enrolment to firstname.lastname@example.org
