Warwick is a campus university with a truly cosmopolitan student community. We earn a consistent place at the uppermost reaches of the UK Higher Education league tables, and are making a positive move up the international tables too. The latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) ranked us 7th in the UK for research, having 19 departments in the top ten in the UK in their unit of assessment based on outputs. The REF also ranked 65% of our research as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. Our reputation for research attracts teachers who are among the very best in their fields. They’re the teachers who are innovating, who are setting the agenda for others to follow. We’ve been named third fastest rising young university in the World by the Times Higher Education Young Universities Summit, and the fastest rising university in the UK.

Subject overview

This course will inspire and develop a passion for the study of the Ancient World and its continuing relevance to the modern day.
As well as the opportunity to experience the ancient languages at the appropriate level (beginners included), participants will be exposed to ancient history, philosophy, literature, art and architecture, sexuality and gender studies, mythology, religion, and ancient medicine. Students will also discover the influence of the Classical Civilisations on even on the most modern visual media. Moreover, the course will provide the opportunity to handle coins and artefacts from our departmental collections.
In this way, we plan to offer an exciting introduction to Classics at university level for those who have a fundamental interest in the subject but have not had the opportunity to study it before; as well as push those who have studied Classics to go beyond the traditional school syllabus. The programme additionally incorporates a brief insight into the wealth of career paths opened up by a Classics and/or Ancient History degree.

Teaching and learning on the Summer School take the form of lectures, interactive seminars and group project work – just as on the full-time undergraduate degree programme. Thus the summer school helps participants find out what it is like to be an Economics student at Warwick. The course aims to be inspirational and to give students insights both into the subject matter of Economics and how it is taught and studied at University. And as economic forces are at the heart of so many of the world’s most pressing problems (from poverty to conflict to global warming), there has never been a more exciting time to study it!

Students who take part in the History stream will experience a series of short lectures based on our research specialities, such as the cultural history of the NHS, the history of food, and the history of Latin America and the Caribbean.  From the beginning of the week students will be introduced to the basis of historical study—the archives. They will receive inductions on how historians conduct research and how they can use them in their own work. Students will be expected to translate what they have learned in lectures and seminars, plus working with archives, into a creative piece, such as a mini documentary. By the end of the week they will not only have learned about the study of history, but will have put what they have learned into practice as active researchers and historians.
