Wow, it feels so weird posting on The Student Room again. Last time I did it was nearly three years ago, when I was looking for advice for my undergraduate degree!
Well here I am again, and this time I am interested in furthering my history studies, and applying for SOAS.
I'm interested in studying the medieval Middle East, with the hope of eventually being able to read classical Arabic, which is why I'll be taking the intensive modern Arabic modules alongside the history ones.
Anyone know what the history department is like? I know of Konrad Hirschler but apparently he's leaving this year.
How is life for an MA student here?
I've seen so many mixed reviews about the uni, but frankly, it's the only place I know of that caters to my niche.
If anyone can offer their perspectives or advice, that would be great.
Who do you think it is...
