depending on year of study


There will be three hours of classes each week throughout term 1 and term 2 and for the first 3 weeks of term 3. Please note that there will will one class on the Friday of Reading Week (Week 6). Precise times of classes 2017-18 t.b.a.


This module builds upon the Greek Language (Beginners) module and gives the opportunity to read significant passages of original authors. Students need to have a sound basis to enrol on the module, as follows:

  • Students who have studied the module Greek Language need to have achieved 70% to be eligible for this module.
  • Any undergraduate with a good GCSE pass (A* or A) who proposes to take this course should contact me in early September. Experience has shown that the two-year gap in studying Latin means that students are often not adequately prepared for the demands of this course. I will set set work to be completed before the start of term and set a diagnostic test.


There are three hours of teaching each week. Attendance is required at all classes. If you are ill, you should contact your lecturer by email as soon as possible giving an indication of why you could not be expected to attend. In the absence of any such email, attendance will be noted as unauthorised.


Office Hours are an important part of the module, offering students the opportunity to sort out areas of uncertainty as the module progresses. These run duringteaching weeks of term. Outside these times, please email to arrange an appointment.

This module runs each year.

Module convenor: Mr Clive Letchford.
