    Although I doubt that there are many of you out there share my ambition to become an Egyptologist, I thought I would make a thread to help you out as I found that there were few resources when I was applying!

    Feel free to ask me any questions you like, both on this thread or by PM!

    I was actually going to apply for egyptology, it has been a passion of mine since I was a kid, but I have decided against it for many reasons (parents being the main ones ). Just out of curiosity where are you planning on doing your egyptology degree and what are you looking forward too and why that course in particular ?

    Oh no, that's a shame. I'm sorry to hear that. What course will you be doing instead?

    And I'm going to Liverpool in September. I love the breadth of the course. I'm particularly interested in Ramesside Egypt (which is a specialism of Liverpool's department) as well as the evolution of the language, which I will be able to study as well.

    And I'm going to Liverpool in September. I love the breadth of the course and the fact that you can take a second subject (you have to in your first year) so I'm doing Chinese.

    That's really interesting and that course sounds amazing, I am really interested in like the development of religion and myths in ancient egypt, in particular the amarna period with that whole drastic shift to monotheism. I find that really interesting and I also just like anything and everything to do with ancient egypt from burial rituals to the lives of slave workers.

    Ummmm I will be applying for medicine instead , lol I know its like completely different but I also am really interested in medicine and what it entails but I feel like I will always just keep wondering what if ? Because egyptology has been a passions of mine for as long as I can remember but medicine was more of a recently developed interest after my GCSE's.
