The Royal Society for Asian Affairs and SOAS, University of London, invite school and college students, in particular sixth form students or equivalent, to a day of talks about aspects of Asia on Monday, 1 December 2014.
The aim of the event is to introduce students to subjects and concepts they may not have previously explored as part of their curriculum and, which will, we hope, inspire them. The conference is open to all in the 16-19 age-group. Students interested in pursuing geography, law, religion, international affairs, social sciences or Asian language pathways may find the event particularly relevant.
The day is free and lunch is provided.
