Hi all, I'm currently compiling quite a list of degrees to choose from, in prep for my UCAS application. The main issue is, I am equally enthusiastic about classics, ancient history and history!
For this reason I am looking at combined honours degrees.
Mostly ancient and modern history, or preferably "Classical civilisation and history" degrees, because in that way it allows me to study both history old and new, as well as retaining a little of the study of ancient texts/languages.
Does anyone have any suggestions/experience/recomendations on good courses/unis for this?
My list so far includes...
Oxford, Durham, Exeter, Warwick, leicester, Canterbury, Leeds.
I have my top grades target unis, so am looking more for decent unis but with lower grade requirements to act as my other choices after my top 2 (When I finally decide on them heh) Of course a big focus is on diversity and flexibility with modules and optional modules within the courses too.
Thanks for any feedback

If you're applying to Oxford you must be pretty confident that you can achieve AAA, therefore it might be worth re-considering whether you need to use up 2 UCAS spots on safety choices. One is enough in my opinion.
Off the top of my head, I know that St Andrews does a degree in Classical Studies and Modern History, maybe that will interest you?
