College tutors will usually write to successful candidates with advice about preparation for the course. In addition to reading that might be suggested, we often recommend that prospective students attend one of the excellent Latin or Greek summer schools before coming to Oxford.
Students with offers for Classics II will normally attend a summer school in preparation for their intensive language learning at Oxford. Students with existing language qualifications will benefit from attending the summer schools in terms of their own development, but this is not necessary.
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.
