Two recent examples of essays you have written at school. One should be from your History A Level or equivalent. The other should be written in the language you intend to study at university (unless applying for a language from scratch, in which case it can be in English or another language).
Applicants for History and ML are required to take written assessments both pre-interview (the History assessment) and at interview (the Modern Languages assessment) if interviewed.
The Modern Languages written assessment at interview is based on a short text in English that we will supply. For post-A level language candidates, this hour-long assessment is designed to assess writing skills in a foreign language, the ability to understand an intellectual argument, and to write in English. For applicants to study a language from scratch, the hour-long assessment will assess aptitude for language learning and ability to understand an intellectual argument, writing in English. No special preparation or prior knowledge is required.
Please see the Admissions Assessments page on the University website for further details.
