How it works

The Summer School offers complementary course types and categories, which add up to a full and comprehensive tuition package. It comprises:

  • Short Courses - two days, Friday 31 July - Saturday 1 August
  • Main Courses and Advanced Workshops - five or ten days, Monday 3 – Friday 7 August (First Week) and Monday 10 – Friday 14 August (Second Week).

Course Types

These courses offer an introduction and tools useful for further courses.

  • Friday 31 July: 13:00–15:00 and 15:30–18:00
  • Saturday 1 August: 09:00–12:30 and 14:00–17:30

Courses are either First Week, Second Week or Two-week and involve three hours of class instruction per day. Should you wish to take two Main courses, AM + PM, please read the course outlines thoroughly. Most Main courses require additional work outside of the standard classes of three hours a day.

Monday 10 
 Friday 14 August (Second Week)

  • AM 09:00–12:30
  • PM 14:00–17:30

Workshops for scholars at an advanced stage of their research project, with at least some empirical material, and engaged in analysis of this material.

09:00–12:30 and 14:00–16:00

Combining Courses

  • You may choose to take any course on its own or combine it with other courses.
  • You can take up to five courses during the Summer School, for example: Short Course + First Week AM + First Week PM + Second Week AM + Second Week PM. 
  • Scheduling conflicts mean that some course types don't allow courses to be combined.  To see when the course is scheduled, see the course type (second column from left) on the Course List.
If you are considering combining courses, please be aware that taking two courses in one day (e.g. AM + PM) will entail a heavy workload. Most Main courses require additional work on top of the three classroom hours each day. Before you book, please read the course outlines thoroughly and make sure you are confident you can cope with the schedule.
