College Contacts (Director of Studies)

Each College appoints a Director of Studies to take care of its undergraduates studying Classics. Directors of Studies arrange supervisions, and guide students through the complexities of the degree. The table below gives the names of current Directors of Studies, and the links will take you to a page with full contact details. Where the job is split, the information in brackets will tell you who is on duty in a particular term or for a particular part of the Tripos. Prospective undergraduate applicants should ordinarily approach the Director of Studies for Prelims or Part 1, if listed.
