I enjoy the student atmosphere here. The Students’ Union bar and café is cozy and friendly and I’ve enjoyed getting involved in the knitting for peace club. Also I have been impressed by the array of specialists in the department of Linguistics.

PhD in Linguistics

My main reason for coming to SOAS was that this was the only place where there was a specialist who could supervise my thesis.

I have always been enthusiastic and fascinated by Linguistics. After my BA in Linguistics and English from Queen Mary University of London and MRes from King’s College London I decided to specialise in Sociolinguistics. And SOAS is the best place to study the Kurds as I can cooperate with other departments concerning the Middle East.
