Course details
Course UCAS code: VQ58
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
Combining the study of tremendously rich and influential traditions, this degree explores the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, which are still vital to literary and philosophical work today. Throughout the course, you’ll develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand and appreciate these vital relationships. Your first year lays the foundations, including study of either Latin or Ancient Greek, while your second and third years offer enormous choice of modules across all three departments. Two of your core modules – Problems in Philosophy and Literature, and Textual Studies – are taught jointly across departments, giving you the opportunity to combine these interests directly. If you wish to expand your experience beyond your study at Warwick, we can support you to apply for an intercalated year abroad or on a work placement. This extends the duration of your degree to four years, with your third year spent abroad or on placement, and will be reflected in your degree qualification (i.e. BA Philosophy, Literature and Classics With Intercalated Year).
Assessment Methods:
We track your progress and provide you with feedback through regular non assessed work, assessed essays and written examinations. Your final degree classification is based on assessed essays, other assessed work (which may include, for example, group work or video presentations), examinations and an optional dissertation or individual project. Your second and third year work carries equal weight in determining your final degree classification. The intermediate and final years each count for 50% of your degree.
Application deadline details:

15 January

Located within beautiful woodland scenery, Warwick is often described as being 'in a field'. Although this is true (and you'll appreciate the beautiful streams and open space), the campus is a short bus ride from Coventry city so depending on what you fancy you can really get the best of both worlds. The social events are fantastic once you're on-board, and there's plenty to do if getting drunk midweek isn't your thing.

    Considering that Warwick is a top level school for Economics, studying Econs here is expectedly tough. But great support from the staff and friends make a huge difference! Plus I'm quite career oriented, thus having JP Morgan, McKinsey, PwC all targeting Warwick grads means I come out as a competitive hire.

    Simply: I would rate it 5 stars, see aforementioned reasoning.
