Students are drawn to SOAS not only for its international reputation for academic excellence but also for the opportunity to study in a lively and international environment with like-minded individuals who feel passionately about contemporary world issues. Undergraduates discover a fascinatingly diverse, lively and close-knit community on SOAS’s central London campus, and friendly fellow students who share the same intellectual interests in the international issues in which SOAS specialises. SOAS is a place for those who want to expand their horizons and develop a deeper understanding of the world; for those who want to re-examine preconceptions and challenge the traditional status quo.
