I chose to study English at university because I studied both Literature and Language at A-Level and enjoyed the in-depth analysis of poetry, novels and plays. The global focus of the syllabus for the degree programme at SOAS was a big selling point for me.
My course has been experimental in that we are the first cohort of English students who will graduate from SOAS. A lot of support is offered to us in terms of writing our essays, learning to manage university level work and so forth. The specialisation of our modules is fantastic and allows you to learn about literatures that you wouldn’t be exposed to anywhere else.
