Archaeology is part of one of the most diverse and international subject communities in college. We also have a strong postgraduate presence, with around ten MPhil and PhD Archaeologists and Biological Anthropologists at any one time, alongside research and teaching staff.

The BA in Archaeology is a flexible degree, enabling students to sample new subjects such as Sociology and Social Anthropology, as well as pursuing focussed pathways in Archaeology, Assyriology, Biological Anthropology and Egyptology. It offers a springboard into academic and professional practice, alongside careers ranging from journalism to conservation, heritage management and healthcare.

Admissions Assessment

These assessments are designed to supplement the information in your application and provide a gauge of your abilities - to assess skills, such as comprehension and thinking skills, and levels of knowledge and understanding, relevant to your course.
