SOAS University of London

The atmosphere at SOAS is a delightful microcosm of what the world should look like. It's wonderful to see so many lively young people who care about the world we live in and the direction politics is taking today, and are actively participating.

Perusing the course offering at SOAS is like entering an Alladin's cave of knowledge. The options are endless and the courses truly global in scope. Lectures and tutors are world class - their enthusiasm about their subject is infectious. Departments are proactive in organising events and evening lectures which are open to the public, and the speakers have been impressive. SOAS libraries are exceptionally well stocked, and a variety of study areas made available across the campus. Students are very well supported, with help available at all times.

I joined SOAS as a mature student after a career in biotechnology, and feel privileged to have studied at SOAS.
