Hey everyone.

I'm from Australia, who is applying for a MA in Medieval Studies at the University of York. They require written work, and the problem is, I don't have anything relevant from my undergraduate degree! (Also, I feel that I can improve on previous undergrad essays).

York requires 2 essays, one related to medieval studies. I have plenty of time to write them, but I'd like someone to review them before I submit my application. No worries, I'm not asking anyone on here to do it for me! But I'm wondering if it's a good idea to hire a UK history tutor to give feedback on my written work and personal statement.

I'm an awful predictator on 'how good my work actually is.' Plus, being an international student, I don't know the nuances in British graduate education.

Is this a good idea? Has anyone done this before?

Thanks.

hey bro, hiring someone to review a document + give feedback is what I'd do too, seems like the best thing to do. Hiring the right person might be a struggle. I'm sorry if I'm not helping but my agenda was to ask you what kind of job would you get out of studying this? first thing I'd think of would be a teacher? or some sort of expert you'd see roaming the streets spreading medieval chaos or maybe even a sword maker? Conclusion : I don't know that's why I'm asking you.. thanks

Hey! For my career, I want to start a business (teaching history to the general public at libraries, online, etc) and write historical fiction. This Masters degree will help me write a relevant thesis, and if I want to do a P.hd down the road, I can

Thank you for your advice!
