Dear Students and Teachers,

The UCL Greek and Latin department invites you to the upcoming  UCL Ancient World and Classics Virtual Taster Day, to be held onlineon Wednesday 28th October, 2:00-4:00 pm GMT

What can we learn from a Greek play? How does learning Latin help us to understand the modern languages of Europe and beyond? What can archaeological objects found in the Near East tell us about how people lived in the ancient world? At the upcoming UCL Ancient World and Classics taster day our lecturers will study closely these and related questions. They will give you a sense of what it is like to study Classics and the Ancient World at the undergraduate level at UCL.

During the online taster day, you will learn about the degree-structure and the many exciting pathways you can follow. You will also learn about the departmental Greek play, organised and run by students and performed at UCL’s Bloomsbury Theatre every year. In 2021, The production as well as accompanying material will at least be partly online (with further details to follow in the autumn). You will listen to one 30 min long taster lecture by Dr Marigold Norbye, providing you with a real flavour of what studying the Ancient World and Classics at the university level is like. You will also have the chance to meet (virtually) current undergraduates and ask them questions about their experience at UCL..
