Hello,

While it still may seem quite a way away, I just wondered if there was anyone else on here that is looking to go to SOAS University of London in 2021. If so, what are you hoping to study?

I'd just love to get to know some people that are also considering SOAS in 2021 because why not )

I love it! I'm actually writing this in the library haha (pro tip: B floor is the best). I enjoy my course a lot, but the social side is really fun too. Which course are you thinking of studying?

Aw that’s so cool, I’ll keep that I mind. What’s your course like? I’m hoping to study law with a year abroad and hopefully do some Korean language classes while I’m there )

Chinese and IR is really good (especially the year abroad) but the workload can get a bit heavy sometimes so it's good to stay on top of things! Definitely do a year abroad if you can - my year in Beijing was amazing! It's such a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the language you're learning, and teaches you so many life skills! I've heard great things from my friends who study Korean - apparently the teachers are really kind!

I really hope I can do a year abroad. Beijing?! That's amazing, what was it like if you don't mind me asking? Ah that's great, thank you.

I really enjoyed it! There were bits that were hard - dealing with pollution, language barrier etc but overall I learnt a lot from those experiences, and it brought me and my friends really close together. The classes were very different from the ones at SOAS - it felt kind of like being back at school, but the teachers were great. I also really enjoyed spending the holidays travelling - I went to Seoul over the winter break which was awesome! I really miss it now, although it's nice to be back somewhere I can get vegan food super easily haha

Hey!
I'm looking to do Korean at university and SOAS offers combined courses so hopefully I will do their Development Studies and Korean course which includes a year abroad. I was just wondering if you knew why theres been problems with applications to SOAS for 2021. I know I've having issues applying to SOAS on my UCAS.

Hey heyyy, oh nice! Yeah, I’ve been having troubles as well, I emailed them at the start of the week asking for any updates etc but I haven't heard anything (not surprising as we're in lockdown). If I do hear anything, I’ll let you know
