Read here what one of our alumni thinks of the Academic Summer School experience…

‘’I found my classes extremely stimulating and found the teachers to be very qualified, as they all had previous professional experience in the fields they were teaching. The campus is beautiful and each class room is reasonably sized with students from all over the world. It is also located in a very nice part of London that has plenty of things to offer once class is over. SOAS was an enriching experience for me and I would not change it for anything in the world.’’

    I’m an advisor – What age group is this aimed at please? What are the costs like?

    • Study London says:

      Hi Stefan, students must be a university student or a graduate at the time of attending the SOAS Summer School. If you are looking for a summer school available to school-level students, take a look at the list of summer schools offered in London here. Some of the universities offer the ‘pre-university summer schools’.
