What is it?
Our Essay Prize gives students the chance to follow their passions and explore subjects beyond the curriculum. It’s also 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.
Participants in the Essay Prize will be merited if they engage creatively with
the title and build connections to their studied subjects – for example, an

choose any subject or combination of subjects for their essay.
