Postgraduate Admissions

As a PhD student at the Faculty of Classics, I do not only receive excellent guidance from leading experts in the field of my thesis but also have numerous opportunities to participate in a wide range of scholarly activities, which prepare me well for a future academic career: with travel grants, I have been able to attend international conferences (Rethymno, Freiburg, Edinburgh, St Andrews); generous research grants have made it possible for me to organise a symposium on the topic of my PhD and to plan a conference on ecphrasis in imperial literature; and teaching opportunities, accompanied by expedient training, allow me to gather valuable pedagogic experience.

The Faculty of Classics is a wealth of impressive resources—an exceptional library, a steady stream of lectures and talks, generous funding for trips and conferences, regular exchanges with students from Paris, Lille, and Munich—but the greatest resource of all is the people. During my two years in the Faculty, first as an MPhil and now as a PhD student, I have benefited from an extraordinary system of mentorship, both by my own supervisor and by other senior members of the Faculty, who encourage me to take intellectual risks on the page and around the seminar table.
