In June and July 2023, Summer School returns to campus with an expanded programme, including a number of newly commissioned courses.

Morning or afternoon classroom sessions are complemented by object-focused study in London’s museums, galleries, print rooms and churches. The teaching day generally lasts from 10:00 to 16:30, with registration from 09:30 on the first day.

We look forward to the particular sociability that teaching in person brings – not only in the classroom itself, and during visits, but also during shared morning refreshments and drinks receptions.

The Courtauld Gallery will host post-graduate talks introducing elements of the collections; it also features as a teaching resource in many of our courses, and will be the splendid venue of one of our four Thursday evening Summer School parties.

Summer School on campus includes a framework programme to which all students across the month are invited and which typically includes a plenary lecture, a music recital, a film screening and an ‘in conversation with’ debate.

The fee for all Summer School on campus courses is £595.

All Summer School on campus courses take place at our Vernon Square campus.
