Learning and assessment

How will I be taught?

You will be taught through a mix of seminars, lectures, tutorials and language classes. As part of the programme, you will be supported to deliver presentations to your fellow MA students within our supportive community.

The taught element of the MA runs from October to May, and combines research training modules, study of an ancient language, and a choice of specialised options (listed below). It is also possible to take a residential course at the British School in Athens or the British School in Rome, subject to British School admission.

During the taught stage of the MA, you lay the foundations for the second part of the course, which is an individual research project, carried out between May and September, leading up to a dissertation of 20,000 words. 

How will I be supported?

On enrolment, you are assigned your own Personal Tutor.

We offer one-to-one time in set office hours during teaching weeks, and also welcome email contact. Additionally, you can make appointments to see your personal tutor or module leaders on a one-to-one basis about any issues. Our Professional Services team is also available for advice and support.

Discussion of assignments is offered and written feedback is provided on summative assessment. You are encouraged to discuss your ideas with module tutors both in seminars and one-to-one in office hours.

Your personal tutor is your contact point to discuss any problems arising from the course. Further queries should be addressed to the Course Director.
