Welcome to the Department of Classics at Royal Holloway. We believe that Classics is for all, a living subject that you can use to gain skills for your future. Studying with us you’ll have the exciting opportunity to not only examine the distant past but to engage it with important social issues of the now. We offer students a wide range of challenging courses to suit all levels or previous experience, structured to support progression and information by current research.

We champion a friendly and individual approach to teaching, led by international experts in their field. This is reflected in very high satisfaction scores from our students, which placed us 4th in the UK for student satisfaction in Classics (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, 2022).
