Prospective Students


In Year 1, you have between six and eight lectures and one or two supervisions each week, plus weekly language classes and/or practicals (where appropriate).

You’re assessed each year, principally through written exams but some papers include assessed practicals/fieldwork. Most students also write a 10,000 word dissertation in Year 3.

Archaeology has been taught at Cambridge for more than a century and our staff are at the forefront of research, involving students through fieldwork and research projects.

The University's excellent resources include the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, a well-equipped IT suite, purpose built laboratories and dedicated libraries. In addition, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and the Fitzwilliam Museum provide access to extensive collections of primary sources of world importance.
