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. 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.
We are currently recruiting for PhD entry for the 2016-17 academic year. We particularly encourage Home and EU students (eligible for Scottish Graduate School funding) to contact the Director of Postgraduate Studies (Dr Emma Buckley) OR your prospective supervisor as soon as possible.
Our deadline for complete applications is 8 January 2016.
