I have found studying at SOAS an unbelievable experience, especially as the library houses a unique collections of both print and electronic resources.

MA Global Media and Postnational Communication

I completed my BA in Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at Kings College London before attending SOAS to undertake a degree that looked at media from different perspectives and gave a holistic understanding of media and its role in the global economy. SOAS is the ultimate place for intellectual thinking about the world with special attention to cultural and political issues. It has an almost electric atmosphere and provides endless opportunities to discover more about various cultures. I have met people from different corners of the world, each with their own unique professional and personal stories to tell. This has only been made possible by SOAS, which as an academic institution, prides itself on having a culturally diverse student body.

All of the courses I undertook were extremely enjoyable and the class sizes enabled lively and sometimes heated debates and discussions to take place! The teaching staff have an indescribable wealth of knowledge, yet remain approachable and eager to help in any way possible, which is very comforting if you have taken some time out before returning to study. I have found studying at SOAS an unbelievable experience, especially as the library houses a unique collections of both print and electronic resources. There are so many social events to attend and everyone is welcome, regardless of your cultural background. There are many seminars, screenings, conferences and exhibitions. Friendships are formed very easily and can be effortlessly maintained.

SOAS provides a life changing experience, encouraging you to rethink the world and broaden your horizons. The courses are extremely intensive but the student support offered by the university is second to none.
