The knowledge and skills I learnt from my supervisors and the friendship I established in SOAS give me strength to work in the field.

PhD Gender Studies

My research focuses on gender dynamics of Hong Kong indigenous inhabitants since the legitimization of female land inheritance rights in 1994. SOAS came to my mind naturally as it is well-known for its regional specialization and individual staff’s strength on gender studies. The most attractive part of this programme is that it is interdisciplinary which allows me to work with academic staff from different departments. It surely opens my mind.

I was impressed by the friendly and warm atmosphere in SOAS. Not only can I find solace and strong academic support from my supervisors, I can also meet with students from different parts of world to exchange thoughts and ideas that stimulate my mind. Most importantly, students can make friends through weekly research seminar and classes in the first year. The knowledge and skills I learnt from my supervisors and the friendship I established in SOAS give me strength to work in the field.
