Kirsten Smith, who left Stephen Perse in 2018, kindly came to talk to the Sixth Form students about studying History at the University of Oxford.
Kirsten studied Art at Loughborough for a year before deciding that History was her passion and making a personal application through UCAS to Oxford. She is passionate about American History and in her final year at Oxford.
Kirsten gave an interesting talk on History University Preparation, about how History is studied at Oxford and she gave a breakdown of the different ways of thinking about History. Students were particularly interested in the mechanics of applying, as well as the realities of university life and the talk gave the students lots to think about in terms of where they want to apply, why they want to apply and where their applications might lead them.
