I loved living in London during uni – it really felt like the centre of the world, with loads to do every day. The campus is only a few minutes’ walk away from Tottenham Court Road, where the boutiques and record shops of Berwick Street and the fun of Soho lies. Bradley’s Spanish Bar on Oxford Street was a popular haunt for post lecture boozing, with cheap (for Oxford Street!) pints and a great shabby vibe. My tutors were fantastic, responsive and encouraging our academic ideas whilst being friendly and generous with their time.

Its definitely a cut above the rest in terms of that special feeling you get being a Soasian. I cant fault the unis - only the subjects: having a degree in any humanities/social science makes getting a job afterwards difficult unless you have a very distinct career path you want to follow. i.e. Having a History degree wont guarantee a job in a certain sector.
