London is a vibrant place to study. At SOAS itself you have many interesting lectures and seminar series. Good to keep track of them and attend a selected few.
There are many institutes, academies and libraries that you can easily access (esp. the British Library). Not so far away you have access to the Oxford and Cambridge libraries as well. During my time at SOAS I also made contact with faculty from universities around London and received valuable feedback and advice from them
