Undergraduate Study by Distance Learning


giulia at stonehenge.JPGOur BA (Bachelor of Arts) courses are undergraduate level courses. They will be suitable for you if you would like to study for a recognised University qualification but do not have previous experience of higher education or formal qualifications. You should consider taking one of our BA courses if you want an introduction to archaeology, or archaeology and ancient history, and to develop and enhance your study skills. An excellent way to enhance your career options!

If you know from the outset that you can’t or don’t want to commit to a full BA, you can apply for level 1 (Certificate) or levels 1 and 2 (Diploma) only. Similarly, if for any reason you are unable to complete the full BA programme, you can opt to leave at the end of each level. Successful completion of level 1 entitles you to a Certificate or successful completion of levels 1 and 2 entitles you to a Diploma.

If you don’t want to register for a qualification at all, that’s fine – the modules are available as stand-alone modules for interest only.
