Classics Summer Schools

The JACT Summer Schools Trust has a list of summer schools taking place in the UK. For programmes and booking details please visit the JACT website.

Summer School in Homer at University College London

Monday 27 June - Friday 1 July 2016

The Summer School offers five days of intensive teaching of Homeric language and literature. There will be four language classes each day as well as lectures, between 10.30 and 16.30. The course is not residential.

Teaching will be generally in groups of 12-15 people 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 should 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. Tutors include some of the most experienced and talented teachers of Classics in the London area and beyond.

For further information and booking details please visit the University College London website.

Greek and Latin Summer School at Cork, Ireland

Monday 20 June - Thursday 11 August 2016

For the 17th year running, the Department of Classics at UCC offers an intensive 8-week summer school for beginners with parallel courses in Latin and Ancient Greek. The courses are primarily aimed at postgraduate students in diverse disciplines who need to acquire a knowledge of either of the languages for further study and research, and at teachers whose schools would like to reintroduce Latin and Greek into their curriculum. Undergraduate students are more than welcome to apply as well.

The basic grammar will be covered in the first 6 weeks and a further 2 weeks will be spent reading original texts.
