We understand how important it is to have prompt feedback on the marking of your coursework as part of your studies here at SOAS.

Our marking policy sets a 21 day turnaround for marking for all modules, and 28 days for modules with more than 50 students enrolled.

To make it easier to see when feedback is due, we have created a useful calendar to show when marking should be returned.

The specific dates that apply to your modules should also be shown in Moodle/BLE, so please check there too.

Please note that SOAS closure days do not count towards the turnaround deadlines – so, for example, the marking return dates after Christmas are 21 days plus the 10 SOAS closure days.
