I knew straight away that Jesus College was the one that I really wanted to go to. It is a beautiful and old College steeped in traditions and everyone I have met here has been lovely and supportive, which makes all the hard work so worthwhile. Classics here is really strong, with a number of eminent scholars teaching us on a regular basis who all specialise in different fields. I feel very privileged to be learning from them.

Classics is such a varied degree because it incorporates languages, history, art history, philosophy, and linguistics all into one course, which is why it appealed so much to me. I have only been here two terms and already I never want to leave!
