Department Director Professor Jonathan Michie and student Julie Whyman were interviewed by Cherwell TV, the online video branch of The Cherwell, Oxford University's independent student news.
Of particular interest was the story of Margaret Broadbent, a student who embarked on our Advanced Diploma in English Local History aged 80, and who received her award at our Award Ceremony this year.

Margaret's story was retweeted numerous times during Adult Learners' Week; student journalist Sophie Jamieson from The Cherwell saw the story and followed up for more information about the Department, saying that Oxford undergraduates need to know more about our work and the potential for lifelong learning.
