The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is a college of the University of London and the only Higher Education institution in the UK specializing in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East. It is a global academic base and a crucial resource for London.
The academic focus on the languages, cultures and societies of Africa, Asia and the Middle East makes SOAS an indispensable interpreter in a complex world.
SOAS offer a wide-range of scholarships, bursaries and awards to support students undertaking degree programmes. A number of these scholarships however are available for students from Africa and other developing countries.
The scholarships and other awards listed below are distributed through a competitive application process with respect to financial need and/or academic merit.
