Hi, I'm thinking of applying to SOAS for Japanese. I'm a mature student, is there anything I can do to give my application more of an edge? Also, does SOAS get many mature students/does the Japanese course have many mature applicants? Thanks in advance!
Hi, I'm thinking of applying to SOAS for BA Korean, I am an unconventinal applicant as i've taken maths, biology and chemistry A-levels and no language GCSEs and was wondering what SOAS counts as being capable to learn a language (could that include self study without formal examinations such as topik, or spending six months living with a korean family). Also I was wondering how many students there are in the tutorial and lecture for korean.
Hey! I was thinking about applying for BA Korean combined honours degree however I can’t seem to find where this degree can lead me to once I graduate? As in career wise, I don’t know if it will lead to anything or if I can get a career out of it? Please can you help me on what career’s I can go into, I know about becoming a translator but that doesn’t really suit my fancy. Thank you.

Hi! I'm applying to SOAS this year for International Relations with Korean. I have 2 language GCSEs (Japanese and Russian) and I've been learning Korean in my own time, but I'm wondering if I'll have to take any Korean language exams to show as evidence for the degree, i.e TOPIK, etc.? Also, in terms of personal statements, how much of it should be academic and how much should be extracurricular? Thanks so much
I wanted to know what exactly the requirements were for a contextual offer, as I think I may be eligible but aren't quite sure as the SOAS website doesn't really outline what the requirements are.
has anyone recieved an acknowledgement email yet?

Hi, I would like to make SOAS my firm choice to study Japanese, but I haven't done a foreign language at A level. However, I live in Wales and speak Welsh regularly as a second language (although I'm not fluent). I have an A in Welsh at GCSE, but I'm not sure how to convey my language learning skills beyond that in my statement. Any tips?
