Fieldwork is a central component of archaeology programmes; two weeks of excavation are compulsory at both first- and second-year level and we encourage you to seek further training throughout your degree.
Opportunities for fieldwork are offered in Britain (e.g. Manchester, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Scotland, Southern England) or abroad (e.g. the Eastern Mediterranean, Turkey, Europe, Africa, Australia or Easter Island).

Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. Exchange partners are offered through the Erasmus Exchange scheme (in Sweden) and the Worldwide Exchange scheme (eg. USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore). For more information about the Study Abroad Programme please consult the following: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/studyabroad/
A variety of teaching methods are used, including teaching by seminar, lectures, individual supervision of dissertations and fieldwork. The precise methods depend on the course modules you are taking. Archaeology fieldwork includes one-day site visits as well as extensive periods of excavation in locations as close as Stonehenge and Orkney or as distant as Africa and the Middle East. The School subsidises the cost of fieldwork.
A broad range of coursework involving lectures, seminars, discussion groups, group work and projects and individual research through the preparation of a portfolio and dissertation. Archaeology field training involves a variety of assessment over a range of skills and techniques.
