2022 Online course programme
We know that lots of you have been enjoying our online courses over the last two years, and from the survey results earlier this year we know that 96.5% of you would recommend them to friends. Thanks!
But, we're always looking for ways to improve our services and listen to the comments we receive from you, our supporters. In the survey, you asked us to provide a more varied programme of online courses to welcome those with less prior knowledge all the way through to those of you with years of experience. That's why, throughout 2022, we will be providing a new syllabus of online courses, from introductory classes on Egyptian culture and language to an overview of Egypt in UK museums; from gender roles in the ancient world through to the Amarna Period and its significance in Egyptian history.
We've already launched tickets for the first three courses to be held next year, but watch this space as we start announcing more exciting opportunities to learn about Egypt's unique cultural heritage!

What level am I at?
Our courses are there for everyone to learn something new, but we appreciate that for some that might feel a little overwhelming, especially if you've missed some of the fundamentals. From 2022, we've categorised our courses according to the following levels to help you decide which ones you'd like to attend. Don't forget, all of our courses are also recorded live so you can catch up on lessons missed, or re-watch them if you need to go over anything!
No prior knowledge is necessary
Accessible to anyone with a passion for Egyptian heritage
General knowledge of Egyptian history is recommended
No specialist knowledge in the relevant area is necessary
Undergraduate degree-level comprehension of Egyptological terms is recommended
Introductory knowledge of the relevant area is recommended
We hope that this new system will help you to find the best courses for you and also to trace your progression over time!
