As part of our scheduled continual improvements to the School digital infrastructure, it has become necessary to carry out planned maintenance work on our virtual learning environment, SOAS Moodle.

This means that on Tuesday 4 July 2023, all users will be unable to access SOAS Moodle ( as this will be in maintenance mode whilst we carry out this planned upgrade. 

Please can you plan for this, for example, by avoiding using SOAS Moodle for teaching and learning activities that will be affected during this maintenance period.
