Classics and Ancient History

The Classics and Ancient History Society (CAHS) is run by academic staff and students for students of Classics and Ancient History. Other interested persons are most welcome to join.

The Student Philosophy Association (SPA) regularly and frequently puts on its own seminars at which students of philosophy read and discuss their own papers, and socialize afterwards. The Association has its own library which is accessible to all members. An important event on the SPA calendar is the Annual Camp, which is attended by students and staff members. Office bearers are elected each October. Philosophy encourages the Association, and believes students of philosophy will find the SPA a stimulating group. For further information, please contact
