The Royal Society for Asian Affairs and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London would like to invite sixth form students to attend a day of talks about aspects of Asia on Monday 1st December.
The aim is to introduce students to subjects and concepts they may not have previously explored and which will, we hope, inspire them. The conference is open to all in the 16-19 age group. Those interested in pursuing geography, law, religion, international affairs, social sciences or Asian language pathways may find it particularly relevant.
The day is free and lunch is provided.
