My first introduction to SOAS was at a Politics Summer School. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Being small and tight-knit, it made further education seem less daunting and overwhelming, and I realised that this was the university for me.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the Arabic half of my degree thus far, including the expansive grammar and vocabulary! However, my favourite module of Arabic yet is Classical Arabic Literature: not only did my professor’s passion for his subject really shine through but his class was brilliant enough for me to run between campuses so as not to miss a word. In the Linguistics half, I have most enjoyed Phonology: analysing data and piecing together patterns in order to explain, prove or disprove, a theory. Both have really fired my interest to the extent that they are my focus-points in my research of Masters subjects.
