I'm really torn between SOAS and the University of Sheffield for 2015 and I think one of the major differences between the two will be that while Sheffield will provide a more 'normal uni experience' I've heard that SOAS will not... especially in terms of nightlife.
I wanted to ask what freshers' week at SOAS is like and also generally how often people go out and so on? Do the different departments have events for students to meet each other at the beginning of the year?
Also how expensive is London nightlife?
(I'm not really a massive party person but I think it would be super helpful to meet people that way during freshers)
