• You may well find that the classical and ancient world wets your intellectual appetite and if so, St John’s offers courses in Classics & Joint Schools, Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, and History (Ancient and Modern). They welcome applications from students with and without prior experience of studying the ancient world.
• Getting to spend a study afternoon at St John's is a huge perk of the competition. This will really help you to see if studying at Oxford could be for you.
