Experienced online and distance learning provider

SOAS has over 20 years’ experience delivering distance learning programmes

Equal in standard to those taught on campus, our online and distance learning degrees offer you the flexibility to fit your studies around your professional and personal commitments, while simultaneously allowing you to build up a global network of professional contacts.

Study at your own pace, according to your own needs

The modular format of our programmes means you can begin your studies with just one module and the credits earned will count towards an upgrade to a full postgraduate programme as you go along.

Multiple study sessions throughout the academic year means you can plan your study around your schedule, and you’ll only be paying for the modules you are enrolled on.

Postgraduate online and distance learning programmes include:

Development, Environment and Policy

Development Studies

Financial and Management Studies

International Studies and Diplomacy
