Just dealing with a major dilemma here. I have an offer from both places (thanks to adjustment) and I don't know which uni to pick. SOAS has a great environment, I'd probably be more social and active there. It's also a pretty unique and unconventional university experience, and it's only a short journey from home. The student unions at SOAS are also a lot more active. City, however, offers better graduate prospects, is definitely a lot more organised, formal and academic, it beat SOAS in the league tables for the first time ever this year and I prefer the degree. The staff seem to be a lot more professional and its facilities are great. I'm going to study Social Anthropology & Middle Eastern Studies at SOAS and International Politics & Sociology at City.

If I do pick SOAS, how easy would it be to change courses once I'm in?

Thanks.

SOAS has a good reputation in Development Economics and Middle Eastern Studies.City has a good reputation for its Business School Cass and its Finance/Business Degrees. City will also become one of the University of London's (UOL) self-governing Colleges following the UOL Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday 15th July, 2015. Here are the links were this news was published:

So like most things in life it depends on what you want to do after uni. If you want to do development economics go for SOAS if you want to do more mainstream finance go to City.
