    I've received offers from soas, st. andrews, and goldsmiths and now I've got to choose between the three. In the three I would study History of Art. However at St. Andrews I would study both art history and English. Since I'm passionate about English that's what's making me lean towards St. Andrews. However I really do not want a Western perspective on art history which is why I'm leaning towards SOAS. Please help!

    I think Goldsmiths is probably the weakest of the three. Out of SOAS and St Andrews, they will give you such different experiences.

    In SOAS, you will be getting taught at a much more niche uni with a very eclectic cultural background. You'll also be in London which is a really big city.

    In St Andrews, you are getting to study another subject as well which could be a big draw, it will be a bit more historical as you'll be at a really old uni in quite a small town.

    Weigh up whether you want to do english as well as art history (which might be a bit more useful imo, and scottish degrees offer a bit more flexibility), what sort of uni you want to go to (niche with very specialised focus, a bit more broad/old) and where you want to live (really big deal here, you could not get more different places).
