Tom, 3rd year

'The course itself exceeded my expectations, not only in the way it was taught, but the extraordinarily wide range of topics that it was possible to study. It is a course that allows the study of Byzantine Church History alongside the philosophical problems of the Mind and of Language, to name just a few diverse areas. This has really allowed me to follow what I found myself to be genuinely interested in. The freedom the course gives me to follow my passions in the subject is a massive boost.'


Edward, who graduated in 1980, is now a senior solicitor and currently Deputy Head of Legal Department in an overseas affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell. He says:    

‘Studying at Oxford has provided me with the necessary analytical skills to thrive as a practising lawyer. To my mind, I am at a distinct advantage when pitting my legal skills against an opposite number who lacks the intellectual discipline which an Oxford-taught course provides one with.’
