Resources from the Essay Prizes 2022

In 2022 we ran a programme of structured advice and guidance webinars to support students entering the Essay Prize Competition. Reviewing this programme will give you the opportunity to improve your essay writing skills, get the tools for developing a strong essay, and get a sneak peak of university-level study.

In 2023, we launched the Essay Writing Masterclass Programme in place of the essay prizes of previous years.

The recorded webinars can be found below. The password is to access these is ‘essays2022!’.

The password for each recording was provided in your results email. Please email for the password if you did not enter the 2022 competition.
