More about SOAS


SOAS’ core values underpin all its activities:

Promoting equality and celebrating diversity

SOAS is above all else an intimate single community, one that celebrates diversity and is respectful and collegial. SOAS’ diverse population is one of its greatest strengths. Equality of opportunity is at the core of all the School’s activities.

Freedom of speech and tolerance

SOAS is committed to the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge. This can only be conducted effectively in an atmosphere of open enquiry, mutual tolerance and intellectual freedom. In practice this means that we acknowledge the paramount importance of freedom of expression. However, freedom of expression may not be exercised to threaten the safety or freedom of expression of others.

Promoting cultural understanding

SOAS is committed to fostering broad cultural understanding in the UK and in the world at large.

Ethical standards

SOAS will maintain the highest ethical standards in all of its dealings and foster the values of openness, honesty, tolerance, fairness and responsibility in all areas.

Transparency and accountability
