SOAS SU Advice

Did you know that SOAS SU provides independant advice to students on a range of issues from mitigating circumstances, appeals and wellbeing?


Have a look at the support area of our website and if you need advice please get in touch. 


Register to Vote


Finally, remember that as a student you can register to vote at two addresses (although you can only vote once during General Elections).


This means that you'll be able to vote in local elections taking place next year and you'll be able to vote from your term time address if a General Election is called, and it's likely that one will take place during or before Autumn next year. You can register to vote at your term time address here.

Guidance about who can vote is available here:
