Coronavirus COVID-19 information:
We are still planning for all of our Summer 2020 courses to be held in Oxford to go ahead. However, in light of coronavirus (COVID-19) we will not require successful applicants to pay the course fees until the situation becomes clearer and would advise them not to commit to other related expenses (i.e. travel). We aim to confirm and re-confirm courses by the end of April 2020. It is possible that courses may need to be postponed, but we will continue to monitor events and follow UK Government guidance. We will also be providing successful applicants for 2020 courses with the option to defer their enrolment to 2021 should they prefer to do so. Please contact: for any queries in relation to this.
