SOAS vs Birmingham for Economics? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello. I am applying for 2017 entry and just wondering which uni (SOAS or Birmingham) to put down for my 4th choice since they have similar requirements.

    I really want to do the Erasmus+ programme and have seen the international partners of SOAS, which seem pretty good (partnered with Sciences Po Paris and Heidelberg). Whereas Birmingham seems to be higher ranked for economics although partner universities within Europe aren't specified.

    I'm currently leaning towards Birmingham since SOAS has one of the smallest university campuses in the UK (so I'm guessing it doesn't have good facilities unless of course other University of London unis collaborate, if you know what I mean). Also, it seems quite focused towards development economics and oriental/african studies. However, Birmingham is more liberal.

    What should I go for?
