City of Rome module
The City of Rome postgraduate course is run by the British School at Rome. It takes place in April and May of the academic year; you must formally apply for a place in the November preceeding it (applications are made via Warwick). Places are allocated according to academic merit (announced in December) and cannot be guaranteed. Once students have accepted a place you are committed to attend the course in Rome. You also need to ensure you choose the BSR module as part of your module choices (see the module code above) from the start. Should you be unsuccessful in gaining a place you will take a second optional module at Warwick and graduate with the Taught MA in Ancient Visual and Material Culture: therefore, in the autumn term, you will audit another optional module, which you can then drop in the spring term if you choose.
The course fees are paid by Warwick via fee transfer system. However, you are responsible for paying for your own travel to Rome and for accommodation expenses. Accommodation is provided by the British School at Rome at approx £2,100 for a shared room for the 8 week course, including most meals. Some bursaries are available.
For full details see the BSR website.
