Study Abroad / Exchange Programme at SOAS

Exchange Partnerships

SOAS holds Exchange partnerships with a number of universities across the world; please see below for a complete list of the universities we partner with and from which SOAS accepts exchange students.  If you are a student at a university not on the list, you are more than welcome to apply to SOAS as a Study Abroad student.  

Students interested in coming to SOAS as part of an established exchange programme should begin by contacting their home institution's Erasmus or Outgoing Study Coordinator to ensure that the agreement is current and begin the application process. Many of our partners have internal selection processes and these vary so please contact your home institution's office directly.
