Intensive Latin Training

Intensive Latin Training

All candidates for the Cambridge MPhil in Medieval History are expected to have a “basic understanding of Latin grammar and the ability to translate straightforward Latin texts”. All candidates who have no Latin, or Latin that does not reach this standard, are expected to attend the preliminary intensive three week course in Latin immediately before the beginning of the academic year. 

Many Cambridge Colleges are able to provide accommodation for students for the duration of this course.

At the end of the three week course all students will sit an examination to test their Latin skills. Students who have missed the pre-sessional course for any reason will also be required to sit this test. Where students do not meet the standard of Latin required for the course, the Faculty offer additional Latin courses which run alongside the MPhil programme.
