Welcome to the School of African and Oriental Studies: where prospective and current students can discuss everything from RESPECT and the student union, to whether the female population is really the hottest in South England.
As I'm coming to SOAS in September, I'd really appreciate some info regarding active sporting clubs/societies.
Primarily I'll be looking to join combat groups, I know that there is a boxing society, can anybody provide any more information at all? I'm also aware of Brazilian Jiujitsu and Aikido, is this the extent of combat classes? Is there no MMA at all for example?
I'd also be very grateful for information concerning the best gym to use in the area, research has thrown up Bloomsbury Fitness and the ULU gym as the main two options, for a lifter which is going to be best?
Any information is very much appreciated, the Union handbook is very scant in this regard!
Don't forget that you have access to all of the ULU facilities and clubs. If there's something that SOAS doesn't offer that's at another ULU school, I'm pretty sure you can still join, so it's worth looking at LSE, KCL, UCL, etc.
