Two essay competitions are run by the College of Arts and Law, one for undergraduate students and one for postgraduate students on taught courses. This gives our talented students an additional opportunity to engage with challenging but accessible subjects to produce original and entertaining pieces of work. Prizes are awarded to the winning entries.

The judging panels of the competition were impressed by the high standard of entries and the winners were picked for being particularly engaging, entertaining and thought-provoking. The competition was funded through the generosity of our alumni.
