MLitt in Classics: applications now open


The MLitt in Classics is an intensive one-year programme that offers students full-immersion, first-hand experience with the big themes in the Classics today. It provides training in key academic and transferable skills, while providing ample room for independent research under the guidance of leading experts in their fields.   We are currently teaching the vast majority of our courses in person in a safe environment, and compliant with government guidelines and to high health and safety standards, while making ample provision for remote participation if and as needed. The MLitt does not require knowledge of the ancient languages, but our programme offers you the option to pursue Latin or Greek at beginner’s, intermediate or advanced level, especially if you are considering a Ph.D. afterwards.

Applications for the academic year 2021-2022 are now open. We do have some funding available. These scholarships are open to all applicants and cover 50% of tuition fees at the home (UK) rate. Students wishing to be considered for these scholarships should apply by 12 noon, Tuesday 12th of January 2021. The University also offers PGT scholarships, and we will be happy to give potential applicants further information on these.

If you would like to become part of a lively, international and supportive community of Postgraduate Students, and if the idea of pursuing postgraduate studies at St Andrews with us appeals to you, please contact the School’s Postgraduate Secretary, Ms Sam Dixon (, or the Director of the Postgraduate Taught Programme, Dr Nicolas Wiater (
