stayed in Goldsmiths house from 2019-2020,it had been such a wonderful experience. I heard alot about horrible accomodations and flats,but this place wasn't. I came from a very socially connected family and country to study my master in the UK,and I was expecting myself to struggle with being lonely and not having the real sense of family,but it didn't happen. Can you imagine that I really started to miss my family back home when I moved out of Goldmiths?!. This is because the family atmosphere that I felt while living there. Also,this place has everything that you need make out the best of your studies for many reasons: Firstly,it is always clean,all the common areas are sparklingly clean all the day because of the very dedicated staff who are always there and they clean on a daily basis. The only thing you need to take care of is your room. Secondly, The availability of the quite study room helped me alot while searching for a place to focus and not sleep
SOAS is a great place for cultures and languages, you will not be disappointed with the level of teaching. I feel like I have gone from zero to fluent in my target language. I wish they had their own gym/sports hall, but there is a student gym 2 minutes away, so it's not a big issue. There are many clubs and societies, but some of them can be quite disorganised. The SU is great, really involved, runs a shop and a bar and organises amazing events. I think SOAS offers a very unique uni experience you won't find anywhere else in the UK.
Unique, and honestly quite niche university. World class lecturers in some subjects, less so in others, but if you have a good idea of what it is you want to do, and SOAS does that well, SOAS is a fantastic institution. There language tuition and area studies expertise is second to none in the UK
