Activities for schools
We are committed to supporting teachers and career advisers who provide information and advice to their students about studying one of our subjects. As part of this commitment, we offer a range of activities, taster sessions and resources designed to give your students a realistic insight into what it's like to study here.
We can work with you to link content to your curriculum or give you a taste of what it is like to study our subjects at University level. Thanks to our wide range of subject areas, we can design sessions that embrace two or more subjects to bring them together for you under a single theme.
Studying with us, students will learn about a range of fascinating cultures and languages spanning five million years at one of the largest departments of its kind in the world. Next to learning through lectures and discussions, they will have the opportunity to get practical experience during our field school or take part in excavations in locations such as Greece, Sicily, Turkey or Africa.
Students will be taught in our Garstang Museum of Archaeology, with access to a fantastic collection of over 40,000 objects. Archaeology students also have the opportunity to take a placement at the Garstang Museum or at one of Liverpool’s regional museums.
Liverpool schools classics project
We offer lessons in Greek, Latin, Ancient History and Classical Civilisation. This project is funded by Classics for All, a National Charity for Classics in Schools. It is specifically designed for schools who currently can’t teach Classical subjects, wish to enrich the Classical subjects they currently offer or desire to expand their extra-curricular activities.
- We run accredited Continuing Education courses covering many ancient world topics which offer the chance to build credit towards a Certificate in Archaeology.
- Members of the public can also join our Liverpool Classical Association, which holds events that are open to everyone.
