Soas or Queen Marys

I am not sure whether to pick SOAS or QMUL for my insurance choice. Both universities are pretty close to where I live. QMUL has offered me BBC and SOAS has offered me ABB. Please help me decide !!

Choose the one you prefer, and if you end up liking SOAS more, you're going to have to work even harder. You wouldn't want to be in a University that you don't feel comfortable and don't like the course for 3 years. May I ask, what degree do you study?

When choosing a University its most important to look at what courses they offer, being interested in your classes makes all the difference! I study International Relations and loved the classes, SOAS specializes in postcolonial and non-Eurocentric approaches, particularly related to Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Have a look at all the module options here: https://www.soas.ac.uk/study/find-course/ba-politics-and-international-relations
My favorite modules have been War and Conflict/ Conflict, Rights and Justice. During my degree I have also specialized in East Asia politics and international relations. Hope this helps!
