Future opportunities

A Level Latin is an engaging and satisfying subject in its own right and is an invaluable support to degree courses in English, History and Modern Languages. It is well regarded by admission tutors for Medicine and Law, since the precision of approach, linguistic basis for technical terms and the humanitarian element add a useful breadth to any A levels specified for the course. Its analytical and broad approach to study has also been found to provide a sound basis for courses and careers in Finance and Management.
