What could I go on to do at the end of my course?
This course will enable you to broaden your experience of Classical writers, acquire a more sophisticated understanding of the way ideas and emotions are expressed, and appreciate the subtlety and beauty of the Latin language.
Universities and employers value the higher-level thinking skills that Latin students acquire. Latin complements a range of other subjects from both the Sciences and the Arts. Students who have taken Latin at A level go to study not only Classics at university but also a range of courses including Medicine, Law, English Literature, History and Psychology.
