Study tour*

An exciting element of degrees in the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology is the opportunity to spend two weeks overseas as part of our unique Study Tour module. 

The tours take place in the second year of the Single Honours programmes below:

You will have the opportunity to travel to various parts of the world and the United Kingdom to undertake research at sites, monuments and museums. Greece and Italy are the most popular destinations but students have also travelled to Scotland, France, Spain, Denmark, Turkey or Egypt. 

Together in groups of two-six students you will plan, travel and then present your findings.  Academic supervisors will support you to optimise your academic understanding of the places on your chosen itinerary.

The trip itself will take place over the Easter break.  The University will provide travel insurance and the aim is to keep the cost of the tour low. 


We are making all reasonable effort to minimise disruption to the Study Tour within the current restrictions.  However, it may be necessary to make changes to the Study Tour module and trip due to significant disruption, for example in response to COVID-19.


*The Study Tour is under review and the above information is for guidance purposes only based upon previous years.
