Institute of Archaeology


Graduate Taught Programmes

The Institute offers a number of MA and MSc degrees that, unless otherwise indicated, are all available either full-time over one year (twelve months) or part-time over two years (both modes of study commence in late September).

The Institute is recognised for the excellence of its teaching and student experience, at graduate as well as undergraduate level, as reflected in numerous university league tables and National Student Survey results. Some of the information that you need to apply for a graduate study at UCL is available from the central UCL website but our departmental pages here give you detailed background information about the Instititute, our staff, students and degree programmes.
