About Archaeology at University of Liverpool

All research degree students are initially registered for the MPhil degree. Students wishing to continue for PhD study, transfer their registration to PhD after they have completed at least one year (second year if part-time) if progress has been satisfactory. There are currently around 50 MPhil/PhD students in total in the School.

Subject Overview

The School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology has a number of research groups, which together reflect our major research strengths; those areas where we are recognised internationally. Each of these groups is a dynamic forum for the exchange of concepts and information and has a vibrant seminar series providing an opportunity for staff and postgraduates to integrate their research activities and interact with major external figures in their fields.
