About the Scholarship Provider:
One of the best universities for studying Asian, African, and Middle Eastern cultures is located in London, and it is called the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). If you want to learn about the world from every angle, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is the place to go. We at SOAS have tremendous potential to make a contribution to the current discourse about global issues pertaining to the economy, politics, culture, security, religion, and society because of the breadth and depth of our expertise in each of these subjects.
The University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) was established in 1916 on the city’s south bank. Some of the most well-known professors in their respective professions call this one of the world’s most prominent universities home. Every student at this institution has the option of learning one of several languages that are not spoken in Europe and becoming proficient in at least one of them. School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) students are taught to challenge conventional wisdom at the central London campus of the University of London. The London-based School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest academic institutions from where students can gain a truly global understanding of the social sciences, the humanities, and allied disciplines. The school offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs in subjects like anthropology, development, languages, finance, and law.
Currently, nearly 80% of all bachelor’s degrees awarded worldwide necessitate students to spend at least a year of their education pursuing studies in a foreign nation. Some 26% of first-year students at SOAS take advantage of the school’s language programs and opt to spend their junior year at one of SOAS’s many international partner universities. The famous library at SOAS is one of five that make up the National Research Library of the United Kingdom. It has 400 distinct languages represented among its 1.5 million books, periodicals, and other resources. One of the main draws for scholars from all over the world is our library’s collection of over 1.3 million printed books. We also have an extensive library of rare books, manuscripts, and other archive resources. The University of London Library at Senate House is open and available to all School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) students.
The institution from which you graduate could determine the course of your life. If you decide to enroll at SOAS, you can choose your own study schedule. If you enroll in a worldwide school, you’ll be able to interact with students from more than 135 countries across the world. You’ll get fresh insight into the problems we face as a global community and a reenergized commitment to making a difference as a result of these exchanges. SOAS boasts about 6,000 students, making it one of the largest universities in the world. When compared to the overall student population in the UK, this figure is five times higher. SOAS recognizes that studying abroad might be intimidating for some students, so it makes every effort to ensure that its students have a positive experience. Support is available from the moment you step foot on campus, and there is a special day set aside each fall to welcome international students. Not only may students get help paying for school, but they can also get free, objective advice on things like immigration and visas.
The International Officer at the Students’ Union and the Student Advice and Wellbeing department are also available to help international students. The International Students House is a free community for students from all around the world. Students of all backgrounds can find a welcoming environment at these community events and activities. Pre-sessional English for Academic Purpose courses, which run from four to twelve weeks before the start of term, and in-sessional English language help are available at SOAS for students who do not yet have the required level of English. Those interested in attending SOAS can sign up for these classes. Within two minutes to forty-five minutes of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) campus, the nearest accommodations are located, making them convenient for both amenities and transit. SOAS offers both secure residence halls and rooms in private and shared homes for its students. Twin, single, and double rooms, studios, and flats are all available in these residence halls and rooms in shared flats or houses, as well as adapted, couple, and family accommodation, to meet the needs of students with a wide range of financial and sizing requirements. Rooms at SOAS can be arranged in a number of different ways, including as self-catered, catered, or both. Furthermore, students can stay with host families. The central London neighborhood of Bloomsbury is well-known for its literary associations and beautiful public squares. SOAS’s main campus is in Bloomsbury, near a place called Russell Square.
