About the institution
SOAS is the School of Oriental and African Studies. It specialises in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East. SOAS is part of the University of London and is located very centrally in Bloomsbury. It offers undergraduate degrees in social sciences, humanities and languages. Many courses focus on a particular language or region while others, such as English or economics, allow students to study a subject from a global perspective. You can take a degree in any non-European language without prior knowledge of it.
