I chose to study Ancient History because I felt that it would offer more to me in terms of grappling not only a language, but also aspects of philosophy and historical interpretation, areas that are all rolled into the degree programme.
Exeter has a reputation for respected and extensive research and is an up and coming institution, especially in the field of classics, which reassured me that it was the right university to go to. The quality overall has been impressive and wide ranging, and I know that if I ever had any problems or issues then I could see a relevant member of staff quite quickly.
The department is made up of a selection of lecturers with very different areas of expertise, which comes across in the relatively wide range of modules and focuses on offer. The department is quite eccentric in some aspects, which coupled with an efficient administration team makes for a more than enjoyable experience.
