The Royal Society for Asian Affairs and the SOAS, University of London would like to invite your School/College and in particular your sixth form students or equivalent to attend our day-long presentation about Asian topics on Wednesday, 4 December 2013.
The aim 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 event is open to all in the 16-19 age-group, although students interested in pursuing geography, law, religion, international affairs, social sciences or Asian language pathways may find it particularly relevant.
The day is free and lunch is provided.
