    I have offers for an Economics grad dip from SOAS and Birkbeck. The BBK dip seems to get a lot of love on this forum, but I am really really struggling to find anything anecdotal about the SOAS course.

    If i'm honest, my slight preference is for SOAS, i'd rather have day time lectures (not a deal breaker) and like the idea of being able to take a module on development economics BUT my preferred MSc destination is the LSE (to study economics, providing I do well) and worry they will not take the SOAS qualification seriously. Adding to that my undergrad was a 2:1 in Classics, so that isn't going to wow them either (although i have had a decent, analytical career since graduating).

    Does anyone have any thoughts from their own experiences / what they've heard?
    Also - is there anyone (and I mean anyone, there is so little information online) who has completed the SOAS diploma with or without any regrets!?

    thanks so much in advance
