Dukes Education Essay Prize

We are currently open and accepting submissions for the 2019 Essay Prize. See below for details.

The Dukes Education Essay Prize is a nationwide scheme that encourages academic exploration, creativity, and lateral thinking in students in Yrs 11-12. Inspired by the famous past entrance exam for fellows at All Souls College, Oxford, students write an essay in response to a one-word title. 

The Prize rewards creativity, lateral approaches, and engagement with a subject beyond the curriculum. It is the perfect opportunity to get a taste of university-style work assignments, and a prize is a great achievement to discuss on a personal statement.

The seven titles for 2019 are... 

Nation - Guilt - Security - Infinity - Energy - Gender - Icon
