Plenty of fun club nights etc organised on top of all that is available at each society (screenings, debates, guest appearances etc). Perhaps the range of more trivial and pop culture related groups is something to be desired.×
A very friendly and warm environment. Many helpful lecturers and students.Report

It's a great place to meet other SOAS students, both people who may be your classmates or those who just attend the same university. It creates a cohesive student atmosphere but the hygiene standards of many of those who live there is quite poor and there are few ways of dealing with this problem.×
There are sport clubs and societies but the university dedication to sports is very minimal. Which is a shameReport
Although there is a very good career service, I think that could do much more than what is it doing nowReport
The nights are always a blastReport

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
