Latin

The Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma in Latin provide a self-contained period of structured but challenging study for anyone who wishes to pursue their interest in Latin language and literature. These programmes offer students the opportunity to focus exclusively on the acquisition and/or development of Latin and can be started at beginners, intermediate or advanced level depending on their linguistic ability.

All of our Postgraduate Classics programmes are available to distance learners, and indeed the greater part of our postgraduate cohort is comprised of students studying at a distance. Every student has access to all module materials, including reading lists, on the Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle). All modules are taught by our lecturers, and are designed to be accessible and friendly to learning at a distance.

Many of the modules are delivered in a blended fashion with use of video and audio presentations by the lecturers on each individual topic. It is essential that distance learners have a good internet access, as well as use of computer facilities; the university offers all distance students individual support in accessing material from home. The UWTSD Learning Resources Centre provides access to a variety of electronic academic material to distance learners, including more than 1000 Classics e-books, 70 Classics e-journals, and a number of specialised Classics e-resources.

Specifically for language learners who study at a distance, the School provides the support of dedicated distance language tutors for all its language modules. The distance language tutors provide assistance and support to language learners, as well as interim feedback on assessment. The distance learning tutors work alongside the module lecturers in providing material for language study to distance learners. All language modules include an examination; examination arrangements are communicated to distance learners by the UWTSD Registry, and distance learners can ask for the support of the School in making arrangements for examinations.
