The best thing about studying Anthropology is that it makes you look at things from a different perspective – things that you consider ‘normal’ are not necessarily so

Selja Ryoppy - BA Social Anthropology and Development Studies
“ I am a 22-year old Finnish student, who came to London to search for new experiences and learn about the world from a different point of view. I have always had a great interest in cultures and how people from different countries vary from one another. The best thing about studying Anthropology is that it makes you look at things from a different perspective – things that you consider ‘normal’ are not necessarily so. SOAS is multicultural, tolerant and unique
– there is no other place like it. SOAS is for those who want to change the world, for those who want to reach further and achieve more. I am currently raising money for kids in Nepal and for a chance to climb to the base-camp of Mount Everest!”
