SOAS University of London

I study with students from all over the world and it’s refreshing to hear their ideas. There isn’t such a thing as a typical SOAS student – because we’re such a varied bunch! but I think we all share a desire to understand the world around us and proactively work to change it for the better

" I study with students from all over the world and it’s refreshing to hear their ideas. There isn’t such a thing as a typical SOAS student – because we’re such a varied bunch! – but I think we all share a desire to understand the world around us and proactively work to change it for the better." I think the teaching here is second to none and the School is also world-renowned with unrivalled opportunities to progress. As for example, I was chosen to deliver an academic paper at an international Swahili conference in Germany. It was wonderful to present my ideas alongside experts in the field and it was brilliant to represent SOAS and get some sense of the prestige the university has all over the world"." London has got to be one of the best places in the world. There’s an endless supply of exciting things to do. Plus, helpful for students, there are so many brilliant things to do for free in London! I was initially wary of moving here, but now I can’t imagine living anywhere else."
