The Institute of Classical Studies with its world-class Library provides an important academic focus for postgraduates from universities in the UK and abroad, who are studying all aspects of the ancient world. Postgraduates are encouraged to attend the Institute’s broad range of research seminars and guest lectures, which provide an excellent opportunity to hear and discuss papers by leading scholars from the UK and abroad, as well as to meet others interested in a particular field of study. The Institute is also committed to an expanding programme of research training on aspects of Classical antiquity and related disciplines. The regular series of Postgraduate Work-in-Progress  seminars attracts participants from throughout the UK; student-organised conferences also play an increasingly important role in the Institute’s events programme.

The Institute accepts PhD students. AHRC studentships are available for study at the Institute through the LAHP consortium comprising King's College London, the School of Advanced Study, University of London, and UCL. For further information about this funding opportunity please visit the LAHP website. Candidates should be in the process of applying for a place at their chosen institution well in advance of the LAHP funding deadline. Initial enquiries about studying at the Institute may be addressed to the Institute Manager.

Please note that the Institute of Classical Studies does not run courses at undergraduate level. The Institute provides some modules for the Intercollegiate MA. For detailed information on all MA courses, please contact the departments of the individual London colleges or UK universities.
