Coronavirus (Covid-19) - changes to summer activities

Because of the coronavirus, we have moved our Summer School in Ancient Philosophy and our Summer School in Homer online. We deeply regret that we have had to cancel the Summer School in Classics. Please contact the relevant Summer School co-ordinator via the links below for refunds of course fees. For travel already booked please contact your travel operator and refer to any related insurance policies. 

We are happy to promote Academus Education, a voluntary group of students from the Department of Greek and Latin and beyond, who are responding to the Covid-19 crisis by offering a free online summer school to pupils from Years 10 - 12 on 27 July - 7 August 2020.
