Study archaeology abroad for international students

The Achill Archaeological Field School
 specialises in Early & Late Medieval, Early Modern and Post Medieval archaeology AD500 to AD 1900, providing hands-on archaeology training and fieldwork courses from High School to undergraduate and post graduate levels, to our very popular trainee supervisor course.  

Our accredited courses will run from May to August 2021 and include two, three, four and six week course options, as well as the popular eight week trainee supervisor course.  Students can earn transferable university credits towards their undergraduate degree through our academic partner, the National University of Ireland-Galway -(http://www.nuigalway.ie/international-summer-school/courses/achillarchaeology/).

 Our accredited courses offer up to 9 Semester Credit Hours/18 ECTS per course.

Due to Covid-19 uncertainty, at this time we only require an application from prospective students. A firmer commitment, in the form of a deposit, will be required in January 2021.
