This week’s installment focusses on the undergraduate courses that are available in France, Germany, Hungary, and Italy.


The Institut de Papyrologie et d’Egyptologie at the Université Charles-de-Gaulle offers the DUFL (University Diploma in Language Training) in Egyptian hieroglyphic. It is a three year course which prepares the student for a masters or a PhD. The first two years of the degree focus on the learning of the classic Egyptian hieroglyphic script, while the third year focuses on the hieratic script with the option to learn the Ptolemaic phase of the language.

Language: French.

In a nutshell: perfect for French-speakers wishing to specialise in the languages from the outset.
