SOAS Boot Camp
Find out what some of the 2011 participants thought:
“I always imagined an entrepreneur only wanted to make money. Now I see so many more opportunities and benefits.”
Charlotte Morgan, an undergraduate studying law and social anthropology
“I was heartened to find a team of people who were motivated, dedicated, flexible, talented. I had given up on student societies somewhat due to other students constantly letting down groups—i.e., by not turning up, not doing what they said they would when they would. The team I was in at Boot Camp made me think twice about writing off student groups per se. There are likeminded souls out there!”
“A good first run. There is always room for improvement. However, even if one leaves out the fact that it was the first-ever SOAS Boot Camp, I have to say it is one of the best extracurricular activities one can take part in at SOAS."
Jennifer Falkenhorst, a master's student in international politics.
“This course was a great insight especially into social enterprise and teamwork, and an insightful journey for us as individuals. I would highly recommend it to future participants."
Chris Gaskell, BSc Economics
“It gave me some more concrete ideas about what being an entrepreneur is all about, and I seem to like it”
Robert Koenig, BA Middle East and Geography
