Helena Winterhager, Oxford (Great Britain)

My name is Helena Winterhager. I am 26 years old and studying for a master's degree in Classics at Freie Universität Berlin. Concurrently, I have just finished my master's degree in Ancient History at the University of Oxford and will be starting my PhD programme in history there in October. To go to Oxford has been my aim for a long time, since you can hardly find such a vibrant college life and inspiring academic environment anywhere else in the world. I am excited to report from Oxford in our blog, and I'm sure there will be lots of interesting things to relate.
