At the Department of Theology and Religion at the University of Exeter, we want to hear your ideas about religion!

The best entry will receive a university hoody and a £100 Amazon voucher.

We’re inviting A-Level, BTEC and IB students in any subject to send us 1,000 words on one of the following big questions:

– Would the world be better off without religion?
– Should everyone have to study religion at school?
– Does learning about religion make us look back to the past, or forward to the future?

You can write in any way you like – an essay, a poem, a piece of creative writing – the more imaginative the better! The competition will be judged by a panel of expert academics in Theology and Religion.

To enter, simply email your piece to Dr Rebekah Welton in the Department of Theology and Religion: outreach@exeter.ac.uk

Be sure to include your name, age, school, details of the A Levels, BTEC or IB you are
studying, and the name of a teacher who knows you are entering.

Email all essays for consideration to outreach@exeter.ac.uk by 12 noon
(UK time) on Friday 17 July 2020.

On Monday 10 August 2020 we will announce the winner and share on our Discover University Facebook page.
