After undertaking a series of exams separate from the general academic curriculum, Gleeson, a second-year student of philosophy and theology at Trinity College, is among the 103 students awarded membership to the exclusive Trinity’s Scholar’s club. Scholars are students who have demonstrated exceptional knowledge and understanding of their subjects and are elected annually.
I’d like to be an academic, a philosophy lecturer if possible. I’d do a Masters in Ancient Hebrew maybe, and a PhD hopefully, if I get in.
Gleeson is now entitled to a seat around the dinner table in the Dining Hall at Trinity College and is able to get free accommodation on the campus.
