Study Tour

An exciting element of degrees in the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology is the opportunity to spend a 10-day guided tour abroad or in the UK as part of our unique Study Tour module.

Students listen to a lecture by Dr Maeve McHugh at Mycenae

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

The Study Tour is a 10-day guided tour to Greece, or Rome and Pompeii, or Romano-British sites (one of these in any given year). All travel will take place during the Easter vacation, and students will be accompanied by CAHA teaching staff on the guided tour. The School covers the cost of airfares, accommodation, and travel in the destination. Students are expected to cover their daily sustenance and travel outside the planned itinerary.

The ability to travel will vary depending on staff availability and external factors (e.g. costs of travel, Covid-19 restrictions, FCO advice). If the study tour cannot go ahead, alternative arrangements will be provided for students.

Students can complete an online-only virtual tour linked to the topic of the guided tour if they choose not to travel.
