Catherine - 2017

I decided to attend the Ancient and Classical Worlds Summer Programme to benefit from the quality education provided by professors at the world-leading institution that is the University of Cambridge. In doing so, I also hoped to discover whether I am prepared to pursue a career in the notoriously competitive profession of academia. My experience at Cambridge only enhanced my love of the classics, and has encouraged me to work harder and aim bigger, towards a goal I would have never thought previously within my reach. I now find myself thinking more seriously about life beyond my current degree, towards further postgraduate study. The experience has ignited in me a desire to contribute significantly to the field of classics.
