SOAS uni life

Hey, I'm considering doing my year abroad at SOAS and was wondering what life there is like. All I know is that it's very leftist which I don't have an issue with, and some specific questions I have are: Is it easy to socialise and make friends? Is the school good with accommodations for disabilities (psychiatric and physical)? Is there a party scene/drug culture? Thanks in advance, and other information outside of the questions are appreciated too! :smile:

Hi thanks for your message. SOAS is a great place to socialise and make friends. There's over 100 societies including sport, Indian Society, debating society, MENA, Desi, Consulting, Law, feminist society and many more you can join and meet new people from all over the world, immerse in different cultures and make lifelong friends! Yes the school is good for supporting students with disabilities as they have lots of adjustment options and flexibility in exams. Hope this helps!
