Samra Hasan, 2nd Year

I felt most proud when, being at SOAS, I gained more knowledge about the development issues and growth of my country Pakistan than I had back at home.

BSc Economics

Who does not want to belong to an academic Institution where enough opportunities are available to grow and evolve as an enlightened individual. I came to SOAS knowing that I will get a comprehensive knowledge of Economics and related phenomena.

Little did I know that my student experience at this specialist part of University of London would be one which would not only give me a diverse opinion but would also make me a more tolerant human being. SOAS made me passionate about my academic interests and at the same time helped me recognize and come to terms with my individual dreams. I felt most proud when, being at SOAS, I gained more knowledge about the development issues and growth of my country Pakistan than I had back at home. 

Every student at SOAS is an asset to the School, and this is what makes it the best destination for people who value themselves. As time elapsed I was very fortunate to have become a Student ambassador. I interacted with people of all ages, cultures and background and grew to have diverse opinions about various realities: educational and non-education. If asked I would confidently claim that had it not been for SOAS, I would not have reached my level of self-actualization. SOAS is just the perfect place for people who want to fly high and dream big.
