Course summary

Are you a student from the UK interested in studying Classical Archaeology and Ancient History but your personal or educational circumstances have meant you are unlikely to achieve the grades typically required for Oxford courses? If so, then Classical Archaeology and Ancient History with Foundation Year might be the course for you. The Foundation Year is completely free for UK students and is designed to be a one-year intensive academic course which will bridge any gap between school and our academically challenging undergraduate courses. The programme is carefully designed to build and develop your study skills, subject knowledge and capacity for independent study. Students that pass the course will be awarded a nationally recognised Certificate in Higher Education (CertHE) qualification. If you pass the course at the required level, you will be automatically admitted into Oxford as an undergraduate student if you wish to be, without the need to re-apply. For more information on this course please visit www.ox.ac.uk/fyhumanities The Classical Archaeology and Ancient History undergraduate course combines study of the history, archaeology and art of the classical world. It looks at the societies and cultures of the ancient Mediterranean, through written texts, visual art and material remains, and has at its centre the two classical cultures of Greece and Rome. It is aimed at anyone interested in investigating ancient civilisations and their remains: from Greek temples and Roman amphitheatres to wall paintings and the poignant residues of everyday life. While it is primarily a historical and non-linguistic degree, ancient languages can be used and learned as part of the course. For more information on this course please visit ox.ac.uk/ugcaah. This course is for UK state school students who meet the eligibility criteria. International students are not eligible to apply.
