About

Greek and Latin has been ranked consistently among the top three UK departments in the field over the last decade: our flexible and interdisciplinary PhD programme in Greek and Latin from University College London (UCL) prepares students for leading positions in the field, and we host international conferences several times a year.

Overview

University College London has one of the largest bodies of expertise on the ancient world in the United Kingdom; students have access to staff from UCL Greek and Latin, UCL History and the UCL Institute of Archaeology, as well as to staff with related interests in UCL Anthropology, the UCL English Department, the UCL Film Studies programme and UCL Hebrew & Jewish Studies.

A PhD from UCL is recognised as a world-class qualification in research on the ancient Greco-Roman and Middle-Eastern worlds and their place in intellectual history. We have international staff who are well placed to advise and support students as they enter the academic job market, and we have a good track record in helping our graduates start their careers in research and academia.

Careers

UCL is a major research university, and most of our graduates seek a career in research and university teaching. We help students to apply for postdoctoral research fellowships, and in the academic job market.

Recent graduates have won British Academy, Leverhulme and Wellcome Trust postdoctoral fellowships, and many have gone on to careers in leading UK and international universities (Athens, Bristol, Cambridge, Cyprus, Edinburgh, Exeter, London, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Swansea and St Andrews).

Networking

Each year we host several major international conferences to enable our students to hear and meet leading scholars from across the world.
