SOAS is committed to facilitating international mobility to all students regardless of background. As part of its commitment to improve access, progression and success, the Widening Participation team has teamed up with external organisations to provide short term mobility to undergraduate students who:

  • Are first generation to attend university
  • Have a family income at or below £25K
  • Have experience of care
  • Live in a POLAR Low Participation Neighbourhood (LPN)

There are currently three different outward mobility opportunities targeted at students meeting one or more of the above criteria:

The Association of Commonwealth Universities offers summer school placements as a range of scholarships for Commonwealth HEIs. (External link)

Common Purpose - A one week leadership course for 25 undergraduate students. 

Internships in Asia - CRCC Asia specializes in connecting students with applied work experience in dynamic international settings. In 2019, four internships in Vietnam were offered to SOAS undergraduate students, each lasting eight weeks.
