Egyptology Diploma

During the duration of the Egyptology Diploma course, you will study about the different periods in history that Egypt has witnessed as well as about the historic cities, monumental buildings, individuals and artefacts that has led the Egyptian civilization to become one of the marvels of the ancient times. The Egyptology Diploma will help students to learn research and analytical skills that they can use in various settings. The study of Egyptology will introduce you to a few of the amazing treasures of Egyptian history and archaeology and also some of the most iconic monuments and objects found in the world.

Egyptian history from the early Pre-dynastic period to the end of Pharaonic Egypt with the demise of Queen Cleopatra and Rome’s annexation of Egypt is explored during the duration of the course. An opportunity to go into a bygone era and to examine the lives, perceptions, beliefs and attitudes of a people whose civilization is considered as one of the cornerstones of the modern world, is provided by the Egyptology Diploma. This is the apt course for you to follow if you wish to pursue further studies in Egyptology at a University or if you wish to satisfy your curiosity about the civilization. The Egyptology course is further divided into 8 modular areas, wherein each unit studies a different facet of Egyptology. The geography of Egypt and the importance of the Nile River in the development of this magnificent society will be studied during the course. Also, you will examine different periods in the history of ancient Egypt and explore many monumental buildings, temples and city complexes as well as study about some of the individuals and artefacts that was unique to the Egyptian civilization.

    Having visited the Tutankhamun exhibition in London in February 2020, and then being furloughed from work, I wanted to explore a bit more about Egyptology. This was a really good overview with enough detail but not too much, to give a good flavour of the early Egyptian days and the key kings of the era. The only thing perhaps I would have like to see was a few more pictures but that is being a bit picky! If you have an interest in Egyptology, want to learn at your own speed but still don’t want something too dumbed down, I would recommend this as a good starting point. I enjoyed the quiz sections but again all of these need to be 10 questions (one only had 5 questions and another had 8). I would also fully endorse making your own notes as you go along. I had an A5 book and wrote about 4-5 pages for each chapter. For me, doing this helped me learn and take in the information better. I am now doing the Elearn College course on Gemmology which again looks very interesting. Thank you!

    I also visited the Tutankhamun exhibition in London in November 2019, I was furloughed, and then had to work from home, I wanted to use my free time and expand my basic knowledge of Egyptology and this course really helped. This was a good overview, however the parts of the pyramids in Giza were repeated in unit 5 and again in unit 8, as the other reviewer mentioned all the questions need to be 10, and they need to be more challenging and relevant to the unit rather than referring to information in previous units. Also putting information about artefacts like the Rosetta Stone and Tutankhamun although interesting was not relevant to the units they were in. I made notes as I went along and found this very helpful in retaining all the details. A very good course, but could have been structured better.

    really interesting! i haven’t studied Egyptology before so it was all new to me and i feel like i’ve gained some really valuable knowledge and i’m certainly hoping to continue to learn about the study of Egyptology! a great investment of time spent during furlough. The course, i found, could have been more creative in the layout/ structure, i.e. including interactive sections and others means of teaching than just reading. i also found that the way of testing the students at the end of each unit could’ve done with a creative spruce; more of a varied means by which to test students than just questionnaires. i also found that some of the questions didn’t seem linked to the information provided in the unit reading, but perhaps i missed them. all in all, a really good course i’m v happy to have completed and i’m looking to keep learning about egypt!

    Long time interest in Egyptology was fulfilled during lockdown. Very interesting course and made notes throughout each section. Will be taking this passion further

    I have always been interested in Egyptology having been on five Nile Cruises and besotted with all the TV programs on the subject. When ‘lock down’ came it was an ideal time for me to to an online course. I have really enjoyed it and have already booked my sixth Nile Cruise for 2021, God Willing!
