At Leicester, we are home to a world-class, international team of scholars engaged in cutting-edge research and teaching in our twin disciplines of Ancient History and Archaeology. We have a long history of making high-impact, world-leading discoveries, of which you could be a part.

We offer an exceptional range of flexible career and life changing learning opportunities. We have been teaching students by distance learning for more than 20 years, providing a wide range of internationally-recognised academic qualifications.

We are also proud to host an on-site, professional archaeological unit. The award-winning University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS), the team that found King Richard III, forms part of the School, and supports our provision of archaeological training.
