About me

I'm a second year History student. My initial interest in history was informed through an interest in the Second World War and the international order that emerged as a result.

I'm a second year History student. My initial interest in history was informed through an interest in the Second World War and the international order that emerged as a result. I became fascinated by international relations after studying the interwar period at school, and now, as a university student, I have become interested in Intellectual history and the application of the history of ideas in the present day. The understanding of ideology is inextricably linked to an understanding of an environment that they were formed within. As such, the study of intellectual history can give greater understanding to the rise of intolerance, and as historians we have a role to sustain the proliferation of academia ensuring wide access to analysed history and information. I also love sport, and I have an interest in politics, both of which I engage in at university.

I hated exams at school! but I found that preparation limited stress and prepared me in the best way possible. Applying to university takes a lot of consideration and is a very big decision, your personal statement is a time for you to explain your passions and why you love your chosen subject. Much like my tutorials, it is a time to ask yourself questions, and think beyond the status quo. In the same sense, I think it’s worth noting that there are also amazing opportunities outside of university education.

About my sessions

I found that revision cards are a very helpful way of learning facts, as are quizzes, that can both be applied as contextual knowledge or evidence in arguments. I believe that for exam technique, the best way to revise is to look through past papers and go over exam practice questions. This way of revising is very helpful in informing on how to structure answers and also helps to identify trends in questions and gain a general understanding of the structures of papers. I would like to start m...

I found that revision cards are a very helpful way of learning facts, as are quizzes, that can both be applied as contextual knowledge or evidence in arguments. I believe that for exam technique, the best way to revise is to look through past papers and go over exam practice questions. This way of revising is very helpful in informing on how to structure answers and also helps to identify trends in questions and gain a general understanding of the structures of papers. I would like to start my sessions with a 5-minute quiz to run through some facts that can be applied in the proposed question that we will spend answering during the session. The biggest struggle I had was the structuring of my answers, and I believe that the key to success in history is working over exam and question technique.
