Access Conferences

Access Conferences are one day conferences for students studying for an Access to Higher Education diploma.

Each conference focuses on cross-curriculum intervention and sharing, with the aim of showing a clear transition into Higher Education, and supporting this transition.  Students spend time on campus, attend lectures, take part in study skills workshops, and work with current SOAS students.

As well as strengthening links between SOAS and its valued partner colleges, the Access Conferences provide an insight into degree-level study, with comments from previous attendees including:

"I learnt about the level of learning at university"

"[I enjoyed] Sense of university, abundance of knowledge at hand within SOAS, excellence of speeches presented, number of lovely Student Ambassadors and their instinctive sharing of knowledge"

"I thought the lectures were very knowledgeable and passionate which made them easy to listen to"

"inspiration gained from spending time at SOAS"

The next Access Conference on the theme of "Globalisation and Migration" will be held on November 9th 2018. For more information or to express interest, please get in touch with post16officer@soas.ac.uk.
