The School of Economics and Law recently announced a Scholarship Fund in partnership with longstanding friends Forum for International Relations Development (FIRD) covering tuition fees to five Pakistani and five Afghan students for undergraduate and postgraduate British qualifications to be studied in London at the Track-II/1.5 Beyond Boundaries dialogue, organised by the Islamabad based Center for Research and Security Studies (CRSS) and its Afghan counterpart, Organisation for Economic Studies and Peace (OESP).

The announcement was made jointly by CEO Toaha Qureshi MBE and CRSS Executive Director, Mr. Imtiaz Gul, also an advisory board member for SOEL. The CRSS and OESP will recommend and lead the process of referring high achieving and needy students, while the final selection will be approved by SOEL. All students must meet the requirements of the UK Visas and Immigration in order to study as Tier 4 International Students. The process is due to begin in February 2018 with admissions taking place as early May 2018.

The Scholarship Fund will be an extension of the Change Maker Scholarship Fund previously offered to over 15 different countries, including Cameroon, Philippines and Nepal. The need for education is ever more important to build cross border ties given the rising tensions resulting from political disagreements.

Mr. Qureshi said: "Education is the foundation to any peace process and the future of our countries relies on well educated youth that have the international exposure to combat the issues of today and tomorrow. It is my belief that with these scholarships, the students can shape the future and change the current narrative of their respective countries. The youth are our future leaders, it is imperative that we invest in them now, before it is too late. To that end, FIRD and SOEL are ready to offer 10 scholarships through partial tuition fees waivers to assist in creating a new road map for South Asia."

We would like to wish everyone a very happy holidays! During the Christmas and News Year's holidays, the School will be closed from Monday 18 December 2017 to Sunday 7 January 2018. The School will reopen on Monday 8 January 2018.

The Higher Education Review (HER) for Alternative Providers was undertaken by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) at the School of Economics and Law in February 2017. Providers are subject to educational oversight by the QAA under the UK Visas and Immigration's (UKVI) Tier 4 sponsorship requirements. The review lasted 4 days and comprised of two reviewers, Ms Alexa Christou and Professor Graham Romp. The review manager for the HER process was Ms Roshani Swift.

Having entered the HER cycle in July 2016, the review team made the following judgements about standards and quality:
  • The maintenance of the academic standards of awards offered on behalf of degree-awarding bodies and/or other awarding organisations meets UK expectations.
  • The quality of student learning opportunities meets UK expectations.
  • The quality of the information about learning opportunities meets UK expectations.
  • The enhancement of student learning opportunities meets UK expectations.

The QAA review team identified a feature of good practice, stating that the School had designed “programmes in law and management with an explicit focus on social responsibility that articulates well with the School's mission and philosophy”.

Higher Education Review for alternative providers involves a full QAA review every four years, as well as an annual return and short monitoring visits between the quadrennial reviews. The School previously went through the Review for Educational Oversight (REO) process as London College of Business Management and Information Technology (LCBMIT) in February 2012 with good standing and followed up with brilliant monitoring visits in 2013 and 2014, achieving an outcome of “commendable”.

SOEL has undergone a review for educational oversight by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) and has received its final report, which is available in full at: The report was published in May 2017.
Notice: The School will be closed from 13/04/17 to 19/04/17 for Easter break. The School will reopen on Thursday the 20th of April. We hope you all enjoy your holidays. For urgent enquiries, please contact
