SOAS University of London

It was a friend who first introduced me to SOAS and, when I saw the course, I knew that it was the best place for me.

It was a friend who first introduced me to SOAS and, when I saw the course, I knew that it was the best place for me.  Other English courses were too European focused and were just reading books, which I had already read, whereas English at SOAS has a much wider scope and has introduced me to a range of new authors.

I am also grateful to SOAS for introducing me to drama: I am now president of the Drama Society; have written a play, which was performed at the Edinburgh Festival; and have tried my hand at directing and producing.

When I leave university, I would love to get into theatre production, although I realise it is a very competitive field.
