Course Induction Information

for new entrants to the School of Adventure Studies


Reference Documents for new entrants to the School of Adventure Studies (SOAS)

We have included here some sample kit lists for our various programmes which might be helpful for your reference. These are examples only and the details may be subject to amendment on an annual basis. Further detailed information will be sent to you if you have a place on the course starting in September 2017, but please dont hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about what kit is required for your course.

As part of your induction process there will be some items which you need to send to us prior to starting your course and students who have received a firm offer of a place on one of our courses will receive a letter asking for these items. Please ensure these are sent to us as quickly as possible; this will help to ensure a smooth induction process when you start your course.
