Exeter or SOAS? Watch
Exeter is a smaller Campus Uni, self-contained, easy to get around with most 1st Years living on Campus. On the other hand, London Uni is massive, most students live 'out' and therefore there isnt the same sense of community.
How confident are you? Are you the sort who needs to make friends to 'belong' and could feel isolated in the 'bigness' of London? Would Exeter feel more comforting and reassuring? Or does the 'being in London' but outweigh that?
I have applied for 'Anthropology and Global Sustainability' at Exeter and 'Anthropology and International Development' at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies in London). I am equally interested in both courses and from what I can tell so far, both areas are somewhere I would enjoy being. At the moment I would say I'm leaning towards SOAS because of it's location and I feel the course might be more suitable for what I would like to do in the future, however I'm still finding it difficult to make a definite choice between the two, and although I have a while before I need to decide I would love to hear from anyone who has an opinion on either/ both of the universities and whether there is anything more I should think about in making my choice? Cheers!
