Research & Postgraduate Study
We have one of the largest communities of researchers and postgraduate students in the UK, working across the full range of Greek and Latin literature, Ancient History, Art & Archaeology and Ancient Philosophy. In the REF 2014 research assessment exercise we were ranked 2nd equal overall among UK Classics departments (by grade point average). 92% of the School’s research was rated either world-leading or internationally excellent: we ranked 1st in the UK on that measure. We were ranked 4th equal in the UK for research impact, and 4th equal for research environment. Our seminar and conference programmes contribute to a stimulating intellectual environment, that promotes successful postgraduate study and research. The School has a strong social identity and offers excellent working conditions. All postgraduates receive some financial support. A limited number of full and part scholarships are also available.
