Following the huge demand for the Courtauld Summer School in previous years, we have extended the programme to three weeks in July. The courses are on a range of topics from ancient to modern art, and each runs for one week, Monday to Friday. They are taught in small groups by the Courtauld Institute staff and other experts and involve lectures, visits to galleries, museums and buildings, often with special access to certain collections. For details and a brochure please apply as below.

Study Weekends Abroad

We are also introducing this year a series of study weekends (Friday to Saturday, or Saturday to Sunday). These are opportunities to spend two intensive but relaxing days in a variety of European cities with an expert in the field, looking at works of art and architecture first hand. Some courses are designed to complement the Summer School programme, but all are also ideal as separate courses. The study weekends include:
