Students at KCL Strand Campus

The Department of Classics at King’s is one of the largest, most prestigious and innovative centres for the study of antiquity in the world. We have been teaching undergraduate courses in Classics since 1831.


Featured: King's Ancient Languages Summer School

The Department of Classics offers two Intensive Courses in Ancient Greek and Latin. These courses are six weeks long, with the option to study either the first three week block (for absolute beginners) or the second three week block (for students at intermediate level).

As well as being highly intensive, the courses offer a friendly and supportive environment. There are workshops by guest lecturers offering an introduction to skills such as epigraphy and papyrology, and specially arranged guided tours of the British Museum.
