Law: QMUL/SOAS/Warwick

I'm really confused between QMUL, SOAS, and Warwick for Law. Although QMUL and Warwick are ranked significantly higher than SOAS, I've heard and read really great things about SOAS and really like the modules they are offerring. I'm a bit concerned about employability after uni as well, sure nothing is certain but I would like to know the prospects before starting uni. And I've also heard that QMUL campus isn't really the best so I'm just really confused.

Hi! I have also applied to QMUL and SOAS for Law but was unsure as to which university I should choose; I have also applied to Southampton Uni due to its rankings but I'm split between choosing a Uni for its reputation or choosing a Uni for its modules. Employability and student diversity is also an important factor for me, coming from a BAME background so yh.. really confused rn

Hi there,

Picking where to study is understandably a difficult decision.

Here is some info that may help when thinking about SOAS as an option.

As you mentioned, what makes SOAS unique is that it gives you an education global in perspective and not just from a Western perspective. You will get a first-rate law qualification, but you’ll also get module choices that tackle legal challenges, injustices and imbalances across the globe. Many of these courses aren’t taught at other institutions, giving you the chance to tailor your studies and gain a unique insight into what you’re most interested in.

SOAS grads are well regarded by employers for their global outlook and unique specialisms in the languages, laws, economics and politics of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Our students go on to work at a variety of sectors and well-established organisations including city law firms, major banks in the UK and overseas, international development organisations, government offices and charities. For example, some of our recent Law grads work at PwC LLP, Clifford Chance, EY, BLM Law, Addleshaw Goddard, HM Treasury.

They are also award-winning! A team of three current LLB students have just won the National Student Mediation competition out of 17 prestigious institutions. Find out more.

Our careers service can help you pick and prepare for where you want to go after graduation.

You’ll also be part of a vibrant and active student community too. The proportion of international students at SOAS is around five times the UK average and there are 100+ clubs and societies, to take part in. Our Bloomsbury campus is also right in the heart of London, amongst leafy parks, cultural sights and within a cluster of other universities so you’ll get to meet loads of different people and opportunities.

If you’d like to chat with a current student to find out more, you can do so here: https://www.soas.ac.uk/chat-with-a-student/

We hope that helps!
