Hi! My name is George. I am currently studying Maths, Chemistry and English lit. A-level. I have applied to Ba Korean, Korean and International Relations and Chinese at SOAS. (Very different than my A-levels I must say :biggrin:) The main attraction for SOAS to me is the diversity not just in the subjects that are taught but also in the student body. (And it is situated in a very nice part of London) Would love to get to know anyone else who is thinking of applying!

Hi! I am applying for their standard 3 year LLB degree. I currently study Law, Sociology, and Psychology. SOAS is very unique, I really like how different the modules are, how diverse the community is there, and its location!

I changed one of my UCAS schools to SOAS for International Relations & Arabic on October 26, and I received an offer on November 30. Good luck!! :smile:
For me, it took 4 weeks!

Hiya :smile:

My name is Abigail and the course that I am applying for is Law. I currently study English Literature, Government and Politics and French.

I chose SOAS because of its ranking in terms of Law and how it is very inclusive and diverse, especially with modules.

Hello everybody!

- I've applied for History BA at SOAS. I just got my conditional offer today 😁

- I do IB, so my HL subjects are English, Computer Science and History and my SL subjects are Maths, French ab and Classical Civilisation

- I really like the modules SOAS has, and have always had some perk of interest in the Asia region and how international powers influence it. Also, it's a good insurance choice, and close to home (I live in London)

Just got an offer for accounting and finance :smile:

IR wasn't in my personal statement but Arabic was. All my other courses are Arabic/Middle Eastern studies, or Arabic/Islamic studies
