The Classics Programme continues to offer a great experience for international students seeking the supervision of respected academics.

Studying in Dunedin offers a relaxed and positive environment in which those who are not native English speakers can improve their written and verbal communication in English.

In recent years postgraduate students in the department have come from a variety of countries, including Australia, Canada, UK, USA, Germany, and Italy.
