Spring School, Summer School and Study Trips


The first Courtauld Institute of Art Spring School ran for one week from March 29 to April 2. We are very pleased with the interest shown in the Spring School and look forward to holding it again next year.

As in 2003, we will hold the Summer School for three weeks in July, from July 5 to 23. The courses are on a range of topics from Ancient to Modern art, and each lasts 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, as well as a party in the Courtauld Gallery. Many students return year after year but the Spring and Summer Schools also welcome newcomers, including students from the age of 16. The fee for each course is £350.

Study Trips are opportunities to spend two or more intensive but relaxing days abroad in a selection of European cities with an expert in the field, looking at works of art and architecture first hand. Travel arrangements are not included; students are free to make their own. We are organising trips to Istanbul, Bruges, Berlin, Venice, Rome, Assisi and Siena.
