Alp wins Oxford University’s Brearley Essay Prize
Alp Yilmaz (Tradescant, 6a) has won the Brearley Essay Prize hosted by the Stubbs Society of the University of Oxford.
Having entered simply because he was interested in exploring and researching the question of ‘Should current governments be held responsible for the actions of historical governments?’, Alp was thrilled when he learned his essay had been selected as the winner last Tuesday (5th of October).
Now in his final year at King’s, he aims to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at university and is excited to have been invited to speak to members of the competition’s judging panel in a Zoom call.
The Brearley prize attracts entrants from schools across the UK so it’s a phenomenal achievement for Alp to have emerged as the winner and demonstrates the quality of his research and essay writing skills.
