“To kick off the year, I went straight into a week of pre-season rugby which, despite all the running and fitness, was great fun and a fantastic way to bond with new faces. It’s been a really promising start to the season with some convincing scores.
Academically, I’m diving into various aspects of my courses, and I’m currently writing my history coursework, focusing on Germany between the years 1933 and 1945. I’m really looking forward to our trip to Berlin in January where I will be able to visit all the significant places I am learning about.
In English literature, we have started looking at Shakespeare’s Hamlet this year. The discussions surrounding characters are very interesting and often offer much debate. We’ve been given articles to read and podcasts to listen to in order to help develop our own opinions on the play. I’ve found this really engaging and have enjoyed discussions in class
Over the summer break I attended many university open days. It’s really exciting getting to plan my future, and I’m currently in the process of crafting my personal statement, with guidance from my head of house.
I am really looking forward to embracing my final year as I believe that it will be a year of growth, both inside and outside the classroom.”
