Success of Egyptology Degree Programme in Swansea

An icWales artilce about the increasing success of Swansea University in south Wales (UK), which interestingly suggests that at least one part of its continuing rise in applications is due to the inclusion of an new Egyptology degree programme: "A further major factor has been the introduction of a number of new degree programmes. There have been some remarkable success stories, none more spectacular than the growth in Egyptology. Triggered by the building of the Egypt Centre, which houses the Wellcome museum collection, the Egyptology degree has attracted hundreds of applications and helped to boost and transform a Classics and Ancient History Department which was struggling to compete with prestigious universities for students of Greek and Latin".
