IEPOA-UAB has built up three decades of experience in teaching Egyptology, becoming the reference point in Spain for those wishing to learn more about this discipline or train to be Egyptologists.

We now offer a wide range of studies in Egyptology, both classroom-based and online, from specialist courses to the official university master's degree in Egyptology and the doctoral programme in Egyptology. Within this comprehensive course offer, the postgraduate diploma in Ancient Egypt is a perfect choice if you hope to be enriched and surprised by your learning and would be an ideal starting point if you intend eventually to take the master's degree in Egyptology.

Taught completely online in Spanish, this diploma programme is worth 30 ECTS credits, shared over three modules with two subjects each. The subjects focus on specific, widely differing topics, developed with great academic rigour but, at the same time, suitable for any learner, with the clear aim of building on conventional initial studies that students may already have pursued, such as the free courses we offer on Coursera: Egyptology, or Introduction to Egyptian Hieroglyphics.

We offer excellent, rigorously curated materials in the form of almost 250 videos, many of which we recorded ourselves at sites in Egypt, Jordan and Israel, plus resources to complement these. All this will let you explore Egypt and Egyptian civilisation with great enthusiasm: introducing you to places in Egypt that you probably never knew existed, and aspects of its culture that you had never imagined.

And, of no less importance, under constant supervision by impassioned specialists of international repute, who will help you to understand Egyptian civilisation and consolidate your training.
