New students should upload a photo to SOAS Online Student Services (Once you have completed enrolment and paid your fees, you’ll be able to pick up your student ID card. If you do not manage to upload a photo, we will take one of you during enrolment.
Once you have your ID card you are also able to apply for a Student Oyster card, which gives you discounts on Travelcards. See our Student Discount Scheme page for further information.
