    The scheme offers a flexible programme designed to provide a proper grounding in research skills and methods, and the opportunity to explore an area of independent research suitable for the needs and interests of individual students. It is designed to meet the needs of both those who wish to develop their understanding of Ancient History through a self-contained year of further study, and of those who wish to deepen and extend their skills in preparation for research at doctoral level.

    Special Features:
    * Flexible programme geared to the students interests.
    * Training in research skills and methods, theoretical concepts and the techniques of conducting and writing up an independent research project.
    * Students can take a course at the British School in Athens or Rome.

    The course has two parts, consisting of coursework and a dissertation.
    Part One (Autumn and Spring): Students take a module covering theoretical concepts and approaches in ancient history, and choose two from a range of specialist options, including 'tailored' Special Subjects focused on particular periods and topics appropriate to their individual interests. It is also possible to spend part of the year on a residential course at the British School in Athens or the British School at Rome (subject to acceptance). All students are trained in research methods and skills, including academic writing, public speaking, the handling of ancient texts and Greek or Latin at an appropriate level.
    Part Two (Summer): This comprises a dissertation on a topic of the student's choice of approximately 20,000 words in length.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
