    Hello,
    I have offers for an Economics grad dip from SOAS and Birkbeck. The BBK dip seems to get a lot of love on this forum, but I am really really struggling to find anything anecdotal about the SOAS course.

    If i'm honest, my slight preference is for SOAS, i'd rather have day time lectures (not a deal breaker) and like the idea of being able to take a module on development economics BUT my preferred MSc destination is the LSE (to study economics, providing I do well) and worry they will not take the SOAS qualification seriously. Adding to that my undergrad was a 2:1 in Classics, so that isn't going to wow them either (although i have had a decent, analytical career since graduating).

    Does anyone have any thoughts from their own experiences / what they've heard?
    Also - is there anyone (and I mean anyone, there is so little information online) who has completed the SOAS diploma with or without any regrets!?

    thanks so much in advance

    Hi mascambios, I'm in the exact same position as you only a year later and I'm struggling to find out which graduate schools soas dip graduates end up going to afterwards. Can I ask you what school you ended up choosing and if you were satisfied? Also did you get into your preferred graduate program? Really appreciate your help.
