Lindsay Scott and Amanda Campbell in the Graduate School Office will be pleased to assist with any pre-arrival inquiries you might have.

Timetables and option course choices

The links below take you to our provisional timetables for teaching in 2013-14. These will be subject to change. Please note that the classes listed are only those offered by our School. Those of you on Masters programmes which do not have a fixed curriculum are now asked to provisionally select your optional courses. Please refer to the additional information in the links on the right of this page.

You will be asked to confirm your choices in September once you arrive and meet your Programme Director/Personal Tutor, so you will be able to make changes then subject to availability.

Please note that priority will be given to students who pre-register for courses. Completed forms should be returned to Lindsay.Scott@ed.ac.uk (History) or Amanda.Campbell@ed.ac.uk (Classics and Archaeology) no later than 30 August 2013.

Classics Timetable 2013-14 will follow as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to get in touch.
