Why Study the Ancient World at UWTSD?

The ancient world has been taught at Lampeter since the opening of Saint David's College in 1827. We offer courses on all aspects of the history and culture of the peoples of the ancient Mediterranean.

The smaller than average group sizes mean that our classes are always friendly and never intimidating; this allows staff and students to get to know each other on a friendly, informal and first-name basis. Thanks to our ratio of staff to students, we can offer excellent support to all students. We are very proud of the fact all of our students feel confident to approach any member of staff in class and outside.

Surrounded by supportive and expert staff, it is no surprise that the Classics department was ranked 9th in the UK for student satisfaction in Classics (NSS 2017).

"Being here at UWTSD Lampeter campus, has enabled me to develop personally, meet many people and make great friends, invoked my passion for ancient history and made me that little closer to my future dreams and aspirations of becoming a Museum Curator."
