    Hi! I've applied to Classics but I've chosen fairly different courses at each uni, as I wanted to give myself a big range. I applied to Kings (Classical and Modern Greek Studies), Edinburgh (Classics and Linguistics), St Andrews (Greek and Hebrew), Glasgow (Latin and Greek) and Newcastle (Classics). I got AAB offers from Kings, Glasgow and Newcastle in the first few days after I applied which has made waiting for the other two painful, still waiting for them though. Edinburgh sent about 5 emails saying how busy it was with applicants, so I got the message there. I kind of wish that I'd applied to somewhere other than Newcastle since it's my home town, but when I was applying I wasn't sure if I'd even get any offers since I haven't done Greek or Latin at GCSE or even any language at A Level, so it was pretty much a compromise.

    Right now I'm weighing up Glasgow and Kings for my (insurance) choice. Kings would be the obvious choice based on reputation, but it's quite far and the course is just Greek without Latin. Anyone else stuck between choices?
    Glasgow is really good for classics and because it's in Scotland there's lots of fluidity within the department

    Best of luck to all

    If you have any questions that I may be able to answer as a 2nd year Classics student, then please let me know! I learnt Ancient Greek from scratch and will be learning Latin next year.

    Glad to see there are people interested!

    How hard was AG to learn? Because I was interested in it but obviously it's not symbol-like than words...

    It was okay, but I had very good tutors

    Once you've mastered the alphabet, then it's just a case of learning grammar and vocab like any other language!

    If anyone is looking for a way to boost their Latin or Ancient Greek, or get started with learning either of them - then I would highly recommend the JACT courses

    They offer incredibly good teaching for two weeks over the summer, with accommodation and meals included in the price. I went on the JACT Greek Summer School at Bryanston two years ago and loved it! It is hard work but you will be amazed how far you progress in the time period, and you meet so many like-minded lovers of Classics!

    I will be going on the Latin Summer School at Wells this year, and it has extra perks like trips to Bath and Wales - so if you come you get the extra perk of those

    Here is the link to the latin school - www.latincamp.co.uk and the greek - http://www.greeksummerschool.org
