Classical Civilisations

when 24 July 2016 - 6 August 2016
duration 2 weeks
fee GBP 3449

Our course in Classical Civilisation allows students the chance to look at the structure, rise and decline of major past civilisations, vital to understanding how nations rise, and fall, in today's climate.

Depending on your particular interests, and the research speciality of your tutor, you will study the cultural and political implications of Greek and Roman societies- some of the most exciting and dynamic history accessible to us today.

Please note that there is no requirement for knowledge of Greek or Latin for this course.


You will be asked to choose a broad area of interest once you have been successfully accepted on to the course; we will then find you a tutor with the relevant research and teaching experience.

You will have significant ability to set the curriculum for this course, in consultation with your tutor - you can study anything you are interested in.
