Competition: Theology and Religion Essay (and Video!)


At the University of Exeter, we want to hear your ideas about religion.

We’re inviting A-Level, IB, BTEC and GCSE students in any subject to send us 1000 words on one of the following big questions:

  • What role should religion play in a post-Covid world?
  • Can religious studies help us to better understand the world today?
  • Does religious understanding in society improve people’s quality of life?

There will be three prizes. One for the best standard essay (1000 words), one for the best creative writing piece (1000 words), and one for the best video entry (6-7 minutes).

To enter, simply email your piece to

Be sure to include your name, age, school, details of the qualifications you are studying, and the name of a teacher who knows you are entering. The deadline for entries is 10th July 2022. Winners will be announced at the end of July. The challenge is a great way to develop your research and independent learning skills before coming to university.
