The fee is £395 for the majority of courses in the Summer School. Where courses include visits outside central London the fee is £420. For a few Courses the fee is £460 because close work with objects necessitates smaller groups. The fee includes all classes and gallery visits, lunch on the first day, tea and coffee each day, admission fees, travel for visits outside London, a gallery tour, parties and free access to The Courtauld Institute of Art Gallery all week; cost of travel within London is not covered. Any profits made from the Short Courses are used to support the work of The Courtauld Institute of Art in order to advance the study of art history and conservation.

Gift Vouchers for all Courtauld Short Courses are available on request should you wish to give someone an unusual and memorable present.


Disabled Access

The Courtauld Institute of Art currently does not have full disabled access to all its study areas due to the limitations imposed by being situated in the Grade 1 listed, historical building of Somerset House. Most of the teaching rooms are accessible to those with mobility issues but others, such as the Conservation Studios where course 19 & 26 will be taught, unfortunately are not. For all other courses we will attempt to meet any other access requirements that are communicated to us at the time of booking.

Therefore, please inform us at the time of booking or at least a month in advance of the course if you require a fully accessible teaching space. And where possible, apart from courses numbers 19 & 26 which cannot be re-located, we will strive to arrange it.


The Summer School courses are non-residential, but please see University of London Accomodation


Credit and certificates

Any student who attends either four consecutive Summer School courses or six courses over three years is eligible for a Short Courses Certificate, signed by the Director, which can be presented to them at the final party. If you would like a certificate, please let us know when you book your courses, so that we can mark your achievement in this way.
