IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS

Postgraduates will find the information they need in their respective Handbooks. Other useful information will be provided during induction in the first week of term. The Unofficial Postgraduate Handbook written by the Postgraduate Representative will give a student’s perspective about postgraduate study in classics.

The University Statutes and Ordinances is where you can find details about the structure of the course.

A range of further information, such as lecture handouts, past exam papers, travel forms, Student-Staff Joint Committee minutes can be found on the Faculty’s Moodle site (an online resource system).

The Lecture Timetable outlines all the classics lectures for the coming year, in a downloadable PDF.

PhD Students

PhD students will find important and useful information for their course of study in the PhD Handbook. Training in your chosen subject area and in skills necessary for your future employment is an important part of your course.
