Beyond your studies

Get involved with the School and the wider community.


The School works closely with the University's Careers Service to support students and has a dedicated Careers Consultant, Lyn Kane.

Mentoring Programme

The School’s mentoring programme pairs undergraduate students with professionals from a background in History, Classics and Archaeology.

Working or volunteering for the School

There are several ways in which you can help the School Community, get involved and take advantage of opportunities available.

The Edinburgh Award

The Edinburgh Award is a way to gain recognition from the University for the skills you have developed in roles outside of your degree.

Student representation

Effective student representation is a vital part of the University’s quality assurance and learning and teaching enhancement processes and a way you can be involved in shaping the School.


Find your people in our lively community of students-led societies and a wealth of events and opportunities.

Study Abroad with HCA

Third year undergraduate students have the option of studying abroad through schemes organised by both HCA and the University’s Study and Work Away team.


Fieldwork - excavation and archaeological survey - plays a central role in our teaching and research activities.
