Stay active! 

Here are a few idea's for what you can do over the time we are shut down and isolating. 

SOAS Radio

  • While working remotely, the radio is going strong. There is training and recording which can be done from home, which means still ways to get involved. See the contact page, or message @soasRADIO, find it on  Mixcloud



  • Research students may be interested in this open letter to seven research councils and funding bodies calling for support of research students through the coronavirus crisis; organised by Cambridge Uni research students. (Full article)

  • Find extensive TUC (Trade Union Congress) guidance for unions, including a petition on sick pay for every worker, list of ten things union members can do, and links to affiliated unions statements.

  • FFFP has started a petition for staff and students to sign to ask the school to extend fractional teachers' contracts until the extended essay deadlines. This will mean students can get support from their tutors and course conveners at this super stressful time.
