SummaryFor the Honours Programme in Modern European Languages and Classics, students are required to attend Classics courses at a University in the appropriate country, which will require approval by the Classics Subject Area. If the student's mode of study-abroad does not automatically offer access to university courses, long essays based on independent study carried out while abroad may substitute for these courses, at the discretion of the Head of the Classics Subject Area.
Course description The courses taken by students on a study-abroad year will change from year to year, and from institution to institution. It is essential that the courses chosen by the student fit with their curriculum at Edinburgh University.

Special Arrangements When access to university courses is not possible during the year abroad, long essays based on independent study carried out while abroad may substitute for these courses, at the discretion of the Head of the Classics Subject Area. The student will write two essays of approximately 4,000 words each. Each essay will count for 50% of the total mark for this course. The topic and title of each essay must be agreed between the student and a supervisor before the start of the academic year in which the work is to be carried out. One essay will be sent to the Classics office by a set date early in Semester 2. The second essay will be submitted to the Classics office by the first day of the first semester of the following year, the student's fourth year.
