Classics (Literae Humaniores)

Classics at Balliol College

Balliol is in every way one of the biggest Classics colleges in Oxford. We are unusual in having Fellows in all four of the main areas of the subject; a large, vibrant, and cohesive community of undergraduates (as well as postgraduates); a college library with one of the best Classics collections in Oxford; and plenty of opportunities to participate in the wider life of the subject, including Classics societies, and travel grants.  

Number of places at Balliol: 7-8.
