  • The Summer School offers eight days of intensive teaching in Greek or Latin. We will also be offering Beginners’ classes in Biblical Hebrew, Sanskrit and Coptic, and Advanced classes in New Testament/Koine Greek, and Biblical Hebrew (all subject to demand).
  • There are four language classes each day, as well as lectures and epigraphy workshops, between 10:30 and 16:30.
  • There is no teaching during the weekend.
  • Please note you may only study one language at the Summer School.
  • For general enquiries please email the Classics Summer SchoolNB there is no phone number linked to the Summer School. Please use the email provided.
Teaching is generally in groups of 12-15, which, as far as possible, comprise students of roughly the same level of experience (beginners, intermediate or advanced). The style of teaching is friendly, but demanding: a lot of work is expected from students during the School, but they usually find the whole experience both stimulating and valuable. Some classes concentrate chiefly on reading texts, while others offer a mixture of grammar and translation practice. Their tutors include some of the most experienced and talented teachers of Classics in the London area and beyond. The Summer School in Classics caters for school and university students, and for anyone else who wishes to learn Greek or Latin, or to revive their knowledge of the languages. Previous participants have included: students with no prior knowledge of the languages; pre-GCSE/GCSE and A-Level students; university students; mature applicants who wish to expand their linguistic knowledge. Their principal concern is to provide a thorough programme of language learning in a lively university environment.
