About University of London SOAS
A niche school with some remarkable programmes in a great central London location. This small institution rubs shoulders with UCL, the British Museum and the University of London Library in the academically bustling Bloomsbury district. World class at what they do, you should not be looking at SOAS if your interests are in subjects like general business or marketing.
If, however, you want to focus on the languages, culture and development of locations in either Asia or Africa, then you have found the place for you. Experts on eastern religions rub shoulders with language specialists and musicians. A true academic melting pot at the heart of London.
SOAS is not an easy place to get into for international students - their language requirements are very high for example, and the location is a blessing and a curse. But, if SOAS is for you (and you will know whether it is or not), it is worth reaching those standards to be educated at a remarkable place.

SOAS given ¢G20m donation from Alphawood foundation
The University of Londons School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) has received what it says is one of the biggest ever donations to a UK university in 2013. The ¢G20m gift - worth more than a quarter of its annual turnover - would be transformational, SOAS said. It came from the Alphawood Foundation in Chicago, set up by Fred Eychaner, a former Asian art student at SOAS. The money will pay for building upgrades, research and 80 scholarships.
