Congratulations to the Institute's new undergraduate students
10 September 2013
The Institute of Archaeology is pleased to welcome a strong intake of new undergraduate students, due to begin their studies at UCL shortly.
Following the publication of this year's A-level results, the Institute will welcome approximately 62 Home and European Union students from Greece, Poland, Hungary, Belgium, Germany as well as the UK and 13 Overseas students from as far afield as Brazil, Norway, Hong Kong, Canada, USA, China, Singapore onto its six undergraduate degree programmes.
The diversity of the student body with a variety of backgrounds, experience, ages and nationalities, as well as the vast array of resources and facilities at UCL and throughout London, ensures a rewarding, stimulating and varied undergraduate experience.
The Institute would like to thank the many schools, colleges, families and friends that have helped these students achieve such good examination results, and we look forward to working with these talented students as they start the next stage of their education and develop their careers.
The Institute was again rated the top UK department for Archaeology in the Guardian University Guide 2014 while appearing in the top three of the Complete University Guide for 2014, coming top for graduate employability.
Student satisfaction rates of 100%, as recorded in the annual National Student survey, indicate that Institute students continue to be very happy with the teaching and academic support they receive during their time here.
The Institute currently offers the following undergraduate degree programmes:
- BA & BSc Archaeology
- BA Archaeology with a Year Abroad
- BA Archaeology and Anthropology
- BA Egyptian Archaeology
- BA Classical Archaeology and Classical Civilisation
New undergraduate students will begin their time at the Institute by participating in the compulsory Experimental Archaeology course ('PrimTech') which takes place in the first week of term. As well as providing an informal welcome, it introduces students to a wide range of important ancient technologies and to issues such as resource procurement, inter-dependence between crafts and the information that can be recovered from archaeological analysis of the material remains.
