The library boasts an incredible amount of resources in many different languages. With group study rooms and quiet study places it makes a wonderful learning environment.
SOAS is not a very university, so it does not have any sports facilities, but there is a gym with swimming pool right next door in the University of London Union.
As a 1st, 2nd or even 3rd year student, essays and deadlines are on your mind, not jobs. By the time I was in my 4th year however, I visited it frequently and regretted not going sooner. The careers centre is very resourceful and helpful in pointing you in the right direction for jobs or internships. With CV and cover letter checks, practice interviews and talks throughout the year, you'll be well equipped by the time you leave SOAS.
