The Students' Union has been working to ensure that SOAS provides adequate childcare support for student parents.
We raised our concerns about the level of support currently available to parents studying at SOAS at the School's Student Experience Committee on 28 January. You can read the paper we submitted here.
At present, SOAS does not collect data on how many students have caring responsibilites for a child presenting a huge impediment to ensuring that adequate resources are put in place to support them. It is clear from the students that have spoke to us already that what the School currently has in place is inadequate.
Please take the opportunity to share your experiences of being a student parent in the form below so that we can use these to make the case to SOAS to improve their childcare provision.
