i am really curious about SOAS - i hear so many mixed responses about the university.
SO firstly, what is the course, chinese BA, like? Do you get much scope in modules you choose? do we get to learn about modern china and the history behind it or is it simply a language based course?
Secondly, i really like having a busy social life and going out a lot in the evenings. It worries me somewhat that people on TSR are saying its such an 'alternative' university and that the people don't like going out and freshers week was pants. Do people actually go out a lot? Or do they spend most of their time studying? Would you say that the majority of people are 'different' to your average? Does SOAS lack 'uni life'? I do really want to enjoy the social life that the london uni's have to offer but i'm scared that the people are going to be too 'hippy like' there. What is the general consensus?
Finally, if i was to go what are the intercollegiate halls like? Is there a good chance i will meet people who enjoy the night-life more than those at SOAS?
Thanks very much x
