Hi Harriet

Have you discovered the Archeology forum? You might find future course mates more easily there than in Applications&UCAS.

I've applied to Durham, UCL, Bangor, Manchester, and Bristol!
I've applied to strictly Archaeology for all except Bristol.
I've received an offer of ABB from Manchester, BBC from Bangor, and BBC from Bristol.

I also have an invite to a mandatory Open Day from UCL where I'm pretty sure they give out offers afterwards.

I'm planning to have UCL as my firm and Bristol as my insurance because Bristol gave me an unexpectedly low offer - their typical is ABB <3

I went to the Offer Day at UCL last year - it was great fun!

I applied to Cambridge, UCL, and Birmingham. Cambridge has lots of different routes in the course, UCL has multiple different degrees for different areas of archaeology, and Birmingham allows you to take a double honours degree so they're all good places for archaeology.

Yeah, all three thankfully which was such a relief. I'm declining Birmingham though mostly because I like Egyptology and the course there has very little Egyptian modules whereas Cambridge (firm choice) has multiple Egyptology modules and routes in the course and UCL (insurance) has an Egyptian Archaeology degree.

I do Egyptology at Liverpool! What made you choose Cambridge over Oxford?

That's so cool! I did like the look of Liverpool and the course but after looking around lots of universities I just ended up being drawn to different ones. Same with Oxford, it just didn't the right things for me so whilst it looks like a good course, Cambridge just seemed better. Cambridge has more focus on individual topics so you can follow human evolution or Egyptology etc whereas Oxford was more the practical side of archaeology (which I've done a lot of at A level) so I wanted something new.

The only course I applied to with archaeology was Joint Honours Archaeology & Ancient History, and History at university of Birmingham.

It's the course I want to go o most, with ABC + A in the epq as my offer!

British universities are quite expensive… So instead I applied Archaeology at Leiden University in the Netherlands

Although the requirement seems quite easy, studying in Leiden is pretty academically demanding – for example, students whose performances are not satisfactory will be forced to quit the programme… (https://www.student.universiteitleid...ology-ba#tab-2)

Congratulations! I visited the archaeology program at Leiden in October. I had a tour, spoke with students and faculty. I was very impressed with everything I saw. And the city is wonderful as well. I think you will be happy there.
