Three-year course

If you have enjoyed studying Latin at A-level or equivalent, then our exciting three-year course is for you. It brings together the study of the language, literature, history, philosophy, art, archaeology, linguistics and reception of the cultures of ancient Greece and Italy.

You can apply for the course whether or not you have done Greek to a similar standard, since we offer an 'Intensive Greek' stream where reading and grammar classes will get you up to speed efficiently over the course of the first two years. We will also ask you to learn some Greek over the summer before you arrive (usually at a specific summer-school). Once you reach Cambridge, you will find different classes tailored specifically for those with no Greek at school, those with GSCE, those with AS level, and so on.

Use the navigation column on the left to explore the course in more detail.

We made a short film about the course and put it on Youtube.
