Course Tutor: Dr Joyce Tyldesley

These non-credit bearing courses in Egyptology offers an opportunity for the academic study of specific aspects of ancient Egypt at one of the leading Universities in the UK. They are delivered entirely online, and so are accessible to students worldwide. The courses are written and led by Dr Joyce Tyldesley. They provide stimulating and attractive learning materials, tutor support, and contact with like-minded students through online discussion boards.

Each course is delivered entirely online, using a combination of teaching techniques including: written learning modules, independent research, group discussions, quizzes and recorded lectures. In addition, each course includes an introductory module useful to those new to the study of ancient Egypt, an introduction to the online learning environment, and help with study skills. This preliminary information made available to registered students two weeks before the formal course starts.

Each course consists of six Learning Modules, released weekly for six weeks. The course remains open for four weeks after the release of the last Learning Module to allow time for late completion and further discussion. Students who complete all six specified activities and contribute regularly to the course discussion boards will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Students are able to start the courses at two points in the academic year:

  • 15 October (deadline for application: 1 October)
  • 15 May (deadline for application: 1 May)

Please note that courses fill very quickly so registration may close earlier than the dates advertised above.
