Welcome to our Alumni Page. The Faculty is very proud of its Alumni community of over 4,800 Classicists. We are grateful for the work they do in being ambassadors for Classics in the wider world and for their financial assistance that enables us to support future generations of Classicists and improve our academic resouces.

Classics at Cambridge continues to flourish. We have recently been ranked top in the national Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 and have been awarded first place in The Guardian's league table of Classics courses every year from 2011 to 2016. We are committed to good stewardship of this inheritance and to sustaining excellence in the future. Read Mary Beard's 2011 Lecture, "Do the Classics Have a Future?", to find out more.

Alumni are welcome to visit the Faculty at any time and we would be delighted to see you at any of the public events held in the Classics Faculty. If you would like to get in touch with us please do email . We are particularly interested in hearing from alumni who might be interested in helping current and prospective students by contributing a video about their career after studying classics.

We hope that the following may be of interest, and help you keep up to date with life in the Classics Faculty today.
