Classics is no longer accepting new applications.

The great advantage of being a student in the Classics MPhil is having the independence to formulate my own research questions and intellectual interests while still feeling supported along the way. For the classicist hoping to experience the rigours and joys of self-led research, in a close-knit graduate community and under the guidance of leading faculty, there is no better fit.

Peggy Xu - Ancient History (June 2018)

"This MPhil is basically a research-oriented programme, and it fits beautifully anyone who wants to think independently and critically and to learn how to do academic research at the highest level."


Marius Portaru - Ancient Philosophy (May 2017)
