Decolonising the SOAS curriculum is an amazing idea; we come to SOAS to learn about the vast wealth of knowledge and expertise passed on by the scholars of Oriental and African backgrounds, not just the traditional white scholars who have no doubt advanced their fields in an unquestionable manner.
on average, fractional staff at SOAS are only paid for 50% of the work they perform. Despite several rounds of negotiations, petitions, disruptions to essay marking, and the possibility of industrial action, SOAS management is still refusing to pay fractional staff a fair wage
Advice to Management
SOAS is a specialist in Asian and African studies and that should indeed be constituted with the philosophical ideas and theories of scholars from these regions too; it’s only right for us to learn about them.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of London (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.
A 45 minute excel test followed by roughly 1 hour long interview. The three women that interviewed me were all extremely nice and made me feel very calm and settled. They were chatty and made the whole experience feel so much more relaxed. I got very good vibes from the panel, they were engaging and they seemed to take a real interest in what I had to say.
