Oxford Doctorate

Oxford Doctorate

Fund a place at Oxford University to read for a Doctorate in Archaeology. This is one of only c11 places.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

My research is centred on how television affects understanding in Archaeology. If you want to see more I can supply my project plan. However my published work is available through this link Papers

I have been working towards this goal for 13 years and I am not from a priviledged background. I left my comprehensive school at 16  with just a couple of O levels as I struggled with Dyslexia. I only read my first book at 15.

I came to university late and went to Southampton for an undergraduate degree- I graduated in 2006. My undergraduate dissertation was published and has been on the reading list of several universities.

 I then studied for an MA in Maritime Archaeology at UCL this was partime and self funded. I graduated with a distinction (the highest grade you can get). I graduated in 2009.

Since then I have been trying to secure a place at universities. Nearly every year since I have emailed out my proposal and finaly looking for a supervisor.

I have finally been accepted at Oxford. I am unable to find the fees and I am looking for support for the first year.
