The Archaeology Graduate Diploma at UCL is fully integrated within the teaching programme of the Institute of Archaeology. The programme offers education in all major aspects of archaeology, in a challenging yet supportive environment, under the supervision of teachers actively engaged in research at the forefront of the field. What and how will I learn? By the end of the programme, students will have a developed understanding of past societies within their cultural, socio-political, economic, historical and environmental contexts, as well as an understanding of the current social and political context of archaeology, with particular reference to the management, interpretation and presentation of archaeological heritage.

The programme consists of two core courses (30 credits) and optional courses from the wide range available within the department (90 credits).

Any language course that students may choose will also be assessed by examinations. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The UCL Institute of Archaeology is the largest and most diverse department of archaeology in the UK, and provides a stimulating environment for postgraduate study. Its outstanding archaeological library is complemented by University College London's main library, University of London Senate House and other specialist libraries. UCL is located in central London, within walking distance to the British Museum and the British Library. Students benefit from London's many museums, galleries and other archaeological spaces, but in particular have easy access to UCL's own museums and collections, which form a resource of international importance for academic research. Your future career The programme provides a solid grounding to allow students to pursue graduate studies (MA and higher) in the field and to develop their own interests which they will pursue at a graduate level. At the same time, the Diploma gives students enough knowledge in its own right should they wish to move onto other objectives and not continue their graduate studies in the field. Entry Requirements A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. How to apply Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is suitable for students who already hold a first degree in non-archaeology subjects and would like to have a further qualification or a conversion to an archaeology qualification, or to prepare for an MA degree in archaeology.
