Can i study Law at SOAS if i am a white british person as the university says oriental and african studies? the university takes 40 or 50 percent from abroad so it may not be any good for me.

mate, DONT worry abt SOAS and im sure ur gonna love it. I have declined SOAS for LLB Law - not because of SOAS but because I got into another completely different course at another Uni (CASS Biz School) but if i were to do law it would be at SOAS....excellent place, excellent degree (and choice of undergrad modules is great!).
Go for it!

yeah it could be one of my six, in the process of choosing but it appears very good. di you get a look around there? are there white people there as i would feel sort of out of place with alot of foreign people. or is it just that the university offers african and oriental courses?

there are white people there. the university does not only offer Oriental and African courses though it is geared towards looking at these areas more closely than other unis. It is very respectable place to go (University of London!). To be honest MOST uni's (good ones) have a large percentage of foreigners.
I havent visited it (as in gone in) but seeing as it takes me 25 mins to get there it wouldnt be a problem...have been past there a lot and it looks..umm normal?!?

It's just that the university specialises in Oriental and African Studies. I agree with Mandeep's post above. If it is a good university whether in the UK or US, you can tell by its large international student population. I find that this is also a good indicator of how good a place is in the US too. Say New York, Massachusetts and California (not to mention Silicon Valley- the vibrant, dynamic high-tech heart of the country) which all have a sizeable international community as opposed to red state, then they are likely to have excellent universities (e.g. Harvard and MIT in Massachusetts and Stanford and Berkeley in California).

It is no coincidence that the best places for education and work in the US are blue states.

of course you can...that's what it specialies in studying, not who studies there!

my brother (a white male) went there and loved it.

and all universities take students from abroad - SOAS just has a higher percentage than most. but remember that if it takes 40 or 50 from abroad it's still got to take 50 or 60 from here...

Goodness, I wouldn't worry about that, smudgetherabbit - I went to the Open Day in March and there were loads of white British prospective as well as current students. So yes, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to go!

PS. I'm going too, by the way, although I am nor white nor British.
