Session overview

Whether you have visited us at an open day or have never had the opportunity to visit us on campus before, our live, online information sessions are a great, interactive way, of finding out more about studying with us.

These sessions will start with a short presentation from our Graduate Officers, who will introduce you to the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, delve deeper into their subject area, and discuss the programmes on offer and how they are structured.

The rest of the hour is devoted to an open Question and Answer session, when our academic staff will be happy to discuss any further questions you have about your programme of interest. Support staff will also be on hand to take any administrative queries, such as applying, choosing courses and funding opportunities.

The session is delivered using Blackboard Collaborate. If you wish, you will be able to ask questions via text chat or speak to us directly.

We hope you’ll be able to join us!

Our events form part of a rolling programme co-ordinated by the University, allowing prospective applicants to gain expert advice on a wide range of topics such as admissions, careers and funding.
