All Final Year Ancient Classics students take 30 ECTS credits (6 modules) over the year.

There is a limited number of places in CCS303.II Special Project in Classics, which is designed for students who wish to conduct an independent research project during semester two. If you are interested in pursuing such a project, please speak to a member of staff with whom you would like to work, ideally before the start of the academic year. See the module description in the Student Handbook for further details.
