Five GCSEs at grade 4/C or above, including grade 5/C in English Language and grade 5/C in GCSE English Literature and History (if taken). You must also have a genuine interest for study of the ancient past.
A Level Ancient History is highly respected by universities. The Classics programme can help you to progress into a range of careers, including Archivist; Barrister; Chartered accountant; Archaeologist; Newspaper or Website Editor; Heritage manager; Higher Education lecturer; Market research and advertising; Museum/gallery curator; Journalism; Secondary school teacher; Solicitor.
You will be given the opportunity to visit museums, universities and heritage centres to speak to curators, researchers and heritage managers about career prospects in the field of historical studies. Trips to significant archaeological sites in Britain will also be offered during the course.
There may also be the possibility to undertake volunteering placements in archaeological societies and other heritage projects. (Note: this will depend upon the need for volunteers and may vary each year). If you would like to undertake other work placements alongside your studies, then our Employability Team can help. In the second year of the course there will be the opportunity for a trip to Italy, where you will be able to visit famous historical sites studied on the course in Rome, Pompeii and Naples.
You will be expected to supply your own stationery and buy two texts. All trips will come at an additional cost, but we keep these costs at a minimum.
