Information session

At the start of semester one, we hold an in-person information session for students who have decided to take Ancient Classics as a subject in Second Year or who are still making up their minds. 

This session provides an overall introduction to the course ahead, including an overview of the available modules. This is an opportunity to find out more about the course and to ask any questions.
