hi hi this may be a dumb question but for clearing, can a person apply through clearing to lnat universities with the expected grades they (the uni) want but did not do the lnat exam at all for that year? If it sounds daft or is an absolute no, please feel free to ignore this - thank you!

Only asked since SOAS is one of the lnat unis ^^

Hi!

This is not a dumb question at all! At SOAS, the LNAT is only required if you are not applying with A-level or IB grades. So if you are applying to clearing with one of these qualifications, feel free to call SOAS's clearing hotline on the 17th August. Further details about clearing, including out hotline number can be found on our clearing webpage.

If you are applying with qualifications other than A-levels or IB, then the LNAT would be required. You can read more about our LNAT requirements for non-standard qualifications here.

If you have anymore questions about this, you can always email [email protected]

I hope that this helps and please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hello! What is the International Baccalaureate entry requirement for the East Asian Studies and International Relations course? According to the website, it's 33 points (ABB), but the requirements on the UCAS website are stated as 35 points (AAB). Which is the correct requirement for Clearing this year?

Hi!

From my understanding, the International Baccalaureate entry requirement for East Asian Studies is 33 points (ABB) and the entry requirement for International Relations is 35 points (AAB).

For a dual degree (East Asian Studies and International Relations), the entry requirement is the same as the subject with the higher requirement. So in this case that would be International Relations, making the overall entry requirement for the dual degree 35 points (AAB).

Make sure you call the hotline as early as possible on the 17th of August, as you may find that the entry requirements are lower and spaces do go very quickly. Further details about clearing, including out hotline number can be found on our clearing webpage.

I hope that this helps and makes sense. Please let us know if you have any other questions and good luck with results day!

Hello!

I recommend you try calling SOAS's clearing hotline on Thursday to find out more about the entry requirements if you'd like to apply. It's likely that most of SOAS's programmes will be available in clearing so its definitely worth giving them a call!

Good luck for results day!

Hi hi! Do you recommend calling early for clearing to ask if the course is available then decline your firm and then call back or do you decline first then call to enquire? It does sound riskful

Hi, congratulations on your offer!

I am so sorry, but I cannot provide any time frames right now, as we have received a large number of applications. Please rest assured that our admissions team are working very hard and are trying to respond ASAP to each applicant.

When you call the clearing number, our hotline staff fill in your application details and submit it to our admissions team for processing. Once admissions have reviewed the application, they send out an email with updates and details on the next steps.

If you have already received an email, please follow the instructions on there. If you are yet to receive one, don't worry it will hopefully come through soon!

If you have any questions or want us to clarify anything, please feel free to call our clearing hotline number again: 0203 912 6580

I hope that this helps and please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi!

So, as of yesterday, they have begun to send out enrolment emails. Don't worry if you haven't received one yet, they will continue to send them out over the next few weeks. This email will contain your student ID number, student email and how to enroll.

I hope that this helps and please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I am an international student looking to apply to SOAS for the management course. I haven't been able to call the hotline since I live abroad. I wanted to ask how the student environment is and how most classes are taught/graded. Can you share your personal experience? Also, how are the sports societies and lastly, which accommodation would you recommend?

I doubt there’s accomodation options available since course is about to start. Try emailing their clearing office.
