Educational Priorities

Educational Priorities are the changes that the SU want to see in educational policy at SOAS

Every year, the Students’ Union sets out its educational priorities for changes it wants to see at SOAS based on the manifestos of elected officers, the policies of the Union and key issues affecting students. Whilst these priorities are primarily concerned with academic and educational issues, they are often informed by wider welfare, financial and extracurricular issues.  Subject to approval by the Union Executive committee and student body, these priorities will be submitted to the school's Academic Board as an issue for note. Broadly, the Educational Priorities work to set out the strategic direction of the Union for the year ahead and aim to shape the academic decisions made within the school.

This year’s educational priorities are:

  • Decolonising the curriculum
  • Close the BME attainment gap
  • Improve the pg student experience
  • Reform academic pastoral support
  • Deconstruct the 'oa' of SOAS
