It is a particularly interesting time to study politics, given the recent political earthquakes all across the globe and their fallout.

History and Politics

I am a third year reading History & Politics, two disciplines which, though different, complement one another well, and as such I have found studying them immensely rewarding.  It is a particularly interesting time to study politics, given the recent political earthquakes all across the globe and their fallout. Furthermore, the study of politics itself has undergone changes at Oxford, with the establishment of the Q-Step Centre in my first year being the centrepiece of a shift towards quantitative methods of political analysis.

Outside of academic life, I have enjoyed representing Lincoln on the River Isis, having rowed in the Christ Church Regatta, Torpids, and Summer VIIIs. In my second year, I was also on the ENTZ team, which organised social activities such as Freshers' week and College bops. I have been very lucky to have received several bursaries from the College, including a Crewe minor bursary and the Kingsgate Bursary, for which I am extremely grateful, as they have given me the ability to fully enjoy the rich academic and social opportunities that Lincoln life offers.
