Welcome to UCL Greek and Latin!

For PhD students starting their programme in September 2022

Welcome to UCL! The Director of the PhD programme in Greek, Latin, and the Ancient Middle East is Professor Stephen Colvin.

  • There is a Common Room for postgraduate students in the Department of Greek and Latin (Gordon House) which you are welcome to use at any time.

Arrival at UCL

The academic session starts on Monday 26 September 2022: undergraduate teaching (full term) starts the following Monday.

  • New PhD students should make an appointment to see Prof. Colvin during the week of 26 September (this can be done by email): either face-to-face meeting or via videolink.
