Hey all!!

I thought it might be nice to start a discussion about Classics and those applying to university to study it (as I haven't seen many threads!). I've applied to read Classics at Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, St Andrews and Reading (and I actually got an offer yesterday!).
Is anyone else doing anything similar?

Hi! Future classicist here! I've applied to Oxford, Durham, Exeter, King's and Nottingham and just received an offer from Exeter! It's strange that they make replies so quickly this year. By the way, congratulations on your offer!

well...I would say that Oxford might not be my first choice since I'm an international student and the tuition fee is too high (around 31,000 pound per year) to be affordable. I felt quite depressed and disappointed when I had to abandon my goal... and those scholarships are too restricted and are not for the majority of students from ordinary backgrounds. In fact, I'm eligible for none of them

Oh no!! Are you still going to go through the admissions process?

Yes because I've paid 250 euros for the registration of the CLAT at a test centre. Also, I think that going through the whole process would be a meaningful experience for me, though I'm more keen about the offer from Durham.
Good luck with your Cambridge application!

agh that's tough that Oxford is so expensive, but I hope the CLAT goes well and you get a Durham offer (:

Absolutely! And can I just say you are the first person that I’ve met who’s applying to Cambridge for classics - everyone else I’ve spoken to has been Oxford! What college are you applying to?

Thanks! Haha same, it's a bit slow at the moment but I'm hoping to hear back from Oxford about the interview soon. I know it's early yet but I'm kinda impatient. xD

That's the common thing I've heard! It's only my 3rd choice though and it's still October, so not too concerned. Thanks, you too!
