BA Chinese and Politics
This course provides a true understanding of Mandarin that you could not get at a traditional language course. The Politics department offers an amazing range of course options and also pushes you to learn very fast and to think critically, giving you access to a range of viewpoints missed out in the mainstream.
SOAS picks up where other universities leave off. Others might give you knowledge that is predominantly western oriented. SOAS, on the other hand, gives you an understanding of non-western languages, cultures and countries which is increasingly important in a globalised world.
Coming to SOAS is an eye-opener: my friends here come from all over the world, the music events and other extra-curricular activities held at SOAS come from every culture. You’re truly connected to the whole world here!
