Prospective Students

Anglo-Saxon Norse and Celtic

The course lasts for three years, and as it covers subjects not taught at all in most schools, all students start the undergraduate course at the same level and almost from scratch.

For the first two years (Part I) you will study six subjects from a range of ten taught within the department, including history and language-and-literature topics, with additional choices available from a selection of papers in related fields borrowed from other courses (archaeology, medieval literature, etc.). And for one of these subjects you may substitute a dissertation, if you wish.

In the third year (Part II), you consolidate your knowledge by developing some of those subjects in far greater depth, or you may extend it by adding wholly new ones. You take four papers out of a range of twelve and you write a dissertation.
