Gaining an A Level in Classics will enable you to progress onto higher level education, to study a wide range of degrees, depending on your career ambitions. Classics graduates are popular with employers as they have developed skills such as critical thinking, textual analysis, fluent writing, and the ability to understand and compare data from diverse sources.
You will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of trips during this course. These will help broaden your understanding of the Classical world and give you opportunities to speak to museum curators, researchers and heritage managers about careers prospects in this sector. We also organise theatre trips to watch plays that we have studied in class.
In your second year you will have the opportunity to go to Italy to visit famous historical sites in Rome, Pompeii and Naples.
You will be expected to supply your own stationery and copies of the set texts. You may also want to purchase a textbook and be asked to contribute to visits you may want to take part in.
