St John’s College Classics and Ancient History Essay Competition

The St. John’s College Classics and Ancient History Essay Competition will be running for the second time during the academic year 2011/12.

The competition is open to all students currently studying in Year 12 anywhere in the UK, and is designed to give students of any subject the opportunity to write an essay on the classical world. The essay titles have been chosen to encourage the widest possible approach to investigation of the ancient world; topics include ancient history, archaeology, ancient literature, and philosophy.

St John’s is interested in providing an opportunity for independent research, and a taste of university study, for those who have studied the ancient world before, and for those who have never previously studied classics.

Application is now open, and the deadline for entries is Friday 10th February 2012.
