Our student experience

Each student brings their own unique experience to these ancient texts, images and objects, and this makes for an exciting and dynamic learning environment. Many of our students enjoy studying classical studies with us so much they go on to do an MA or even a PhD. We consistently score highly in student satisfaction ratings, and our students are the best ambassadors for our subject. You can read some of their inspiring stories on our blog – just use the ‘Undergraduate student profiles’ or ‘Postgraduate student profiles’ links on the right-hand side to read them.

Classical Studies and your career

As well as the subject-related knowledge you’ll gain, you’ll also learn a host of transferable skills such as extended writing, analytical thinking, problem-solving and the communication of knowledge and ideas to different audiences. We’ll help you explain the skills you’ve gained to future employers and explore your career options.
