Its outstanding archaeological library is complemented by University College London's main library, University of London Senate House and other specialist libraries.

While you are here
After you leave
- Students who have taken this degree in the last few years have gone on to work in policy areas and project areas for national and international organisations, such as English Heritage, the National Trust, ICOMOS and UNESCO. They have also worked in development control, consultancies (such as Atkins Global), and in museums, site interpretation and education. Many students have also gone on to further research in academic institutions around the world, such as Stanford, Athens and Leiden, or here at UCL.
