Each year, the Manchester Classical Association, in conjunction with the Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology Department at the University of Manchester, hosts a study day for AS and A-Level students in Classics, Classical Civilisations and Ancient History from schools across Manchester. The day features a series of lectures given by university staff from the department based on a range of topics related to the A Level syllabus. The event is intended to give these students a taster of university study and to benefit their A-Level study itself.
Our last event took place on the 27th February 2019, featuring talks related to the Classical Civilisations and Ancient History A-Levels. In 2018, students from four schools attended the event and enjoyed lectures on topics ranging from the Odyssey to Tacitus’ Annals.
If you have are a teacher in the North West and have any questions or would like to get your school involved in future years’ events please email our Secretary, Jenny Bryan, or any other member of the committee.
