Right from your very first week, you’ll be out working the mud with professional archaeologists, learning how to dig on live sites. This extremely hands-on course is split evenly between practicals, lectures and fieldwork and is designed to give you a wide general knowledge of archaeology, focusing in particular on the archaeology of Britain. You’ll spend time each year on placement in the UK and/or abroad, working on live digs, making real discoveries and helping carry out cutting-edge research - and continuing your studies and progressing on to the MSci will lead to more professional recognition in the industry.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
