    It's between London or small town.

    And I believe SOAS offer modules that specialise in Islamic and Middle Eastern law. Is that something that interests you? Do you want to work with international law/diplomacy etc?

    Both are well-regarded. SOAS being more traditional and Exeter more up-and-coming.

    Exeter is a very traditional university.
    It became a university in 1955, so no, it's not a "very traditional university".

    Still well-regarded though.

    It's not a tough choice at all: Exeter for sure. It is more prestigious. Stop worrying for no reason.

    And I heard Exeter have built a new Fitness & Health building that is meant to be one of the best in the country.

    Normally I'd present pros and cons, but do yourself a favour and go to Exeter.

    SOAS. To steal from a post on another thread:

    "As the only School of Law in the UK that offers an LLB that is both a QLD and a global law degree an increasing number of students and employers are recognising our unique quality. Whether you want to work for an NGO or a City Law firm a SOAS law degree equips you like no other LLB and is the reason why our students pursue such diverse careers. Obviously as a member of the SOAS SoL I would say that but I thought it important to offer a new perspective. Have a look at our Facebook page if you want to get a feel for what makes the SOAS School of Law so different https://www.facebook.com/soasLAW"

    Obviously that was from some sort of representative of the SOAS SofL, but as a former student of the SofL myself, I can say that it's pretty spot on. This is to say nothing of the fact that a number of Exeter's faculty and administrators have actually left Exeter to come to SOAS in recent years.

    IMHO, the decision boils down to what will make your degree competitive to employers. A degree not entirely distinctive from its peers other than in name and rank? Or a degree which offers the potential for regional and language expertise, comparative analysis, and a perspective on jurisprudence which steps outside what every other program understands as the extent of law (namely UK/EU/NA (if you're lucky).

    SOAS its small its specialised its internationally famous.
    it has fallen far down the rankings in recent years but it used to be top 5 I doubt their degree is worse than it used to be so in my mind its still a top university.

    I went for a taster day with sample lectures I came home that day wanting to study Arabic Burmese Chinese and Japanese purely because of the lecturers some of them seems odd some were funny but they all were truly experts

    its in london

    BUt you really need to visit it because many seem to hate soas.


    Its my dream university sadly they dont teach science/engineering which I decided was my path but I will still try somehow to do some credits there if im allowed.
