Want to study Egyptology online?

I thought I would inform you that Manchester University is now recruiting for its accredited 3 year Certificate in Egyptology which is taught entirely online.

This means that you do not need to physically move to Manchester (or the United Kingdom) to study on this course. It is also sufficiently flexible to allow you to maintain your current employment.

This three year programme provides the opportunity for the serious, academic study of Egyptology at one of the leading Universities in the U.K. It is led by internationally recognised scholars and draws upon the important Egyptological collections of the University's Museum and Library. It attracts students of varying backgrounds from all over the world.

The well-established and highly regarded Certificate is taught entirely on-line via the Blackboard e-learning platform. Students are provided with stimulating and attractive learning materials (texts and recorded lectures), and enjoy the opportunity for the structured study of museum collections, tutor support and contact with other students through online discussion groups.

The course is taught by Dr Joyce Tyldesley (author of Daughters of Isis: Women of Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra: Last Queen of Egypt, Tutankhamun: The Search for An Egyptian King and many others) together with myself. Our former students have gone on to gain Masters or PhD qualifications in Egyptology and Archaeology, work in University administration and even publish books about ancient Egypt.

If you are interested in learning more about the possibility of studying Egyptology at the University of Manchester, please visit:

The deadline for applications is 30th of June 2017 and the course begins on 1st of October 2017.

I hope to see many of you in the autumn.

Kind regards,
Dr Nicky Nielsen
Lecturer in Egyptology
University of Manchester

The essays are marked by the university and an external examiner. The feedback is comprehensive and helpful
