Oxford or SOAS for a Master's in Korean Studies?Watch
My sister got her bachelor's degree from SOAS and then went on to Oxford for her Masters degree - her opinion when comparing both schools is that while Oxford obviously has it's prestigious image and networks SOAS introduced her to new ways of thinking. Oxford would look great on your resume and it may be a no-brainer to choose that school over SOAS to most people. However it depends really on what it is you're looking for. In terms of Oxford being less social - that can be true. Oxford also as an area can be quite gloomy and quiet. But in the end it is just a year - so it wouldn't be too difficult.
Wherever it is you end up choosing I hope it works out for you in the end .
I wanted to also ask about your application process at Sotheby's and your overall experience. I'm in the middle of applying for my MA in Art Business & any insight you can provide would be much appreciated!
