International Year Abroad Student Testimonials
Simply put, I can't imagine a better study abroad experience than the one that SOAS provided.
I chose SOAS because of its uniqueness. Academically and socially SOAS has a very unique environment
Just turn your head left and right: there must be loads of friends from the city you always wanted to go to! They will help you to travel deeper but cheaper!
SOAS is a great school to have on your resumé. There is so much to see and experience in a multicultural city like London, you might not even want to leave.
If you think you might pass it up because it might not be an adventure- think twice. I know I had my heart set on something exotic like India, but London has been more than I could have wanted.
London is really a city for young people and sometimes you get lost in the sea of possibilities that it offers... I enjoyed living in London, it was magical.
Be open to new experiences and bring your appetite.
The lecturers are passionate about teaching and the students have a passion to learn.
Be open and friendly, you will enjoy yourself.
SOAS is more than a university, it is a lifestyle. Every moment I spent at SOAS was a memory and every memory at SOAS was unforgettable.
From the day I arrived I have been telling people that London is the most diverse place I have ever lived
If you ever have this opportunity, don’t think twice!
For the first time in my college career, I felt like I belonged to an intellectual community
The UK and especially London is a great place to study. SOAS in particular offers a warm and hearty atmosphere with the opportunity to study at a renowned university and get to know people from everywhere in the world.
Londoners are the friendliest people you’ll ever meet, and one conversation will shatter forever the image of the British as cold and aloof.
There are numerous academic resources if you need support and even more social events. It seems every country in the world is represented in the UK, so it is a true global experience!
