King’s College London offers two six-week courses (3 July – 11 August 2023) in Ancient Greek and Latin. These courses offer students who have not previously had the opportunity to study Greek or Latin intensive training designed to bring them from complete beginners to a point where they are able to read simple texts. They are ideal for students who intend to study for a Masters or Doctoral degree to get ahead during the summer, thus acquiring an essential skill for their future research. They are also appropriate for teachers, undergraduates, mature students and anyone with an interest in the Hellenic or Roman world.
It is also possible for complete beginners to take just the first half of the course (3 – 21 July), and for those who already have a basic knowledge to take the second half of the course (24 July – 11 August).
Students may choose to study on campus or online.
Students may choose to take the courses with or without an examination (£900 without exam; £1150 with exam per 3-week course).
Bursaries are available. For further details and to make an application:
