Department of Greek & Latin


Graduate Taught

The Department of Greek and Latin is a leading international centre for postgraduate study and research in the ancient world.

We have a thriving postgraduate community, with 40-50 postgraduate students at any time, with research student projects ranging across the whole field of Greek, Roman and ancient Middle Eastern studies and their reception.

Facilities for postgraduate study are outstanding. We are within walking distance of the British Museum and the British Library. UCL has its own excellent research libraries, and the major libraries of the Institute of Classical Studies, the Warburg Institute, the Institute of Historical Research, and University of London Senate House Library are five minutes away. Our graduate students enjoy dedicated research and social space and IT facilities within the department.

  • Postgraduate Open Evening: on Wednesday 30 November 2022 the Department of Greek and Latin at UCL will hold an open evening for anyone interested in doing a taught MA or PhD research with us.
