Students wishing to get further practical experience, the department has links with local archaeological excavations and museums. Excavations normally take place in the summer holiday and provide training opportunities for those interested in pursuing archaeology as a career. Students also have the opportunity to study prehistoric artefacts from local museum collections as the focus of their A2 coursework.
What Students Say:
“I came to OSFC because it offered the subjects that interested me the most – such as Archaeology and Ancient History. I’ve found this subject very interesting – a lot is left to your own interpretation, it’s not just memorising content for an exam like other subjects. Also, the tutors here really care about your progress and success and there’s a great relationship between staff and students” -Tom Warburton. Tom is planning to go on to university to study Archaeology when he finishes College.
