Explore the past at one of the finest departments of Archaeological
research and education in the world. The UCL
Institute of Archaeology offers a vast range of courses (within our
degrees), a number of which are open to the public as "Continuing
Education" (CE) courses.
A number of our undergraduate and Master’s courses (run by lecturers at the Institute of Archaeology) are open to members of the public by arrangement (space and resources permitting) with the Institute’s Continuing Education Administrator.
CE students come from a wide variety of backgrounds: retired people, mature students wishing to prepare for full-time education, general enthusiasts, former students of the subject who wish to refresh or continue their archaeological knowledge, and teachers wishing to broaden their repertoire. These courses, however, do not result in a formal qualification or towards another course / qualification. The continuing education courses do not include the essays or the exams (although you can discuss essay writing with the tutor & it is then up to their discretion).
Courses run by the Institute of Archaeology are taught during the day. CE students participate in and contribute to courses in the same way as Undergraduate/Masters students. Once admitted to the department, CE students are entitled to access to the UCL Library for reading rights (included in the course fee), this fee also includes access to UCL computer systems, internal journal access (no access to journals off campus) and online resources. The basic fee does not include borrowing rights from the Libraries (but this can be easily arranged on payment of an additional fee - please contact Charlotte Frearson, Continuing Education Administrator for further details).
