The Birmingham Classical and Byzantine Greek Summer School (bursaries specifically for teachers available)
The Department of Classics and the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies of the University of Birmingham are delighted to announce The Classical and Byzantine Greek Summer School, which will take place from 12 July to 8 August 2020. This Summer School offers participants the opportunity to study either Classical or Byzantine/Medieval Greek at all levels (beginners, intermediate, advanced).
The courses will take place on the beautiful Edgbaston Campus, and affordable accommodation is available within walking distance. The course is aimed at undergraduate students, postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and at teachers who wish to learn Ancient Greek or improve existing skills. As well as intensive tuition over up to four weeks, the summer school offers a range of workshops and evening lectures, and opportunities to work with the outstanding collections of ancient artefacts and coins housed in the Archaeology Museum, and at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts.
The deadline for applications is 29 MAY 2020. For more details on the application process and the Summer School in general, please see our website. For further enquiries, please contact Dr Theofili Kampianaki.
A number of bursaries will be provided to teachers of state schools thanks to the generous support of the Classics For All charity. For more information on the application process for a bursary, please contact Dr Polly Stoker. If there are teachers with basic background knowledge of Greek, they are welcome to apply for the second week of the beginners’ course only. Details on the content of each week of the beginners’ course can be found here.
