Old Stop Offers Advice to English Literature Students

Joe Farrelly (OS 2022) returns ahead of third year at University
4 Jul 2024
Alumni News

Last week we were delighted to welcome Joe Farrelly (OS 2022) back into school where he spoke to Lower Sixth English Literature students as they begin to prepare their UCAS applications. 

Joe provided useful information about his English Literature degree course at Liverpool University. Using an example of an essay he had written for a British Literature module, he explored the Thatcherite concept that ‘there is no such thing’ as society, in relation to Hanif Kureishi’s ‘My Beautiful Laundrette’ and Carol Churchill’s ‘Top Girls.’  He guided students to explore the difference between undergraduate and A Level writing, which they found interesting and informative.

Huge thanks to Joe for offering his time and we wish him the best of luck with his continued study.
