BSc Economics

Since SOAS was not my first choice when I was applying to universities I didn’t really know much about it. However, by the time I was able to enrol I had found out so much about SOAS that I knew this was the place for me.

Highly regarded as one of the best educational institutions in the world, SOAS offers world class regional modules in economics and politics in the region of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. When I first came to SOAS I felt immediately at home, with its great multicultural environment and its retro look, not forgetting the student union. Studying economics, I was fascinated by the style in which SOAS delivers its knowledge. With so much stress on the real world and especially the Developing world I knew this was the place to be.

I have now specialised in the economics of the Middle East and there is no better institution to do it in. I am considering postgraduate education within my specialised field and I am hoping to do it in SOAS, not only because I’m getting a world class education, but because I’m addicted!
