Do you have a passion for international relations? Would you like to gain more of an insight into studying the politics of Africa, Asia or the Middle East at university?

If you enjoy thinking about states, people and power in a globalised world, then the SOAS Politics and International Relations summer school is for you.

During the summer school you will attend lectures by leading academics, debate key issues, engage in study skills sessions to sharpen up your critical thinking ability and find out about the UCAS process and how to make your personal statement stand out. You will also meet and work with current SOAS students as well as getting to ask recent graduates about their experiences.

This summer school is for students in year 12 attending state schools and colleges within the UK. Priority should be given to those who would be the first in their family to attend university in the UK; this is a widening participation activity designed to give students a first-class experience of study at HE level.

There are a limited number of places available for the summer school  and a mixture of academic and widening participation criteria will be used to allocate places.

To apply for the summer school please submit an application form by Wednesday 28th March 2018. You can either email the form to or post to Sarah Tucker, WP Team - RG01, SOAS, University of London, Thornhaugh Street, London, WC1H 0XG.
