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.
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.
