In 2012, the spring and autumn course ‘Introduction to Art History ’ will take place three times,  from Monday 26 March - Thursday 29 March; from Monday 2 April to Thursday 5 April and from Monday 10 September - Thursday 13 September 2012.

To avoid too much overlap with the Olympic Games in London, the 2012 programme is exceptionally scheduled to run for 3 weeks.  In 2012, Summer school takes place during the following weeks:

Week 1: 9 - 13 July
Week 2: 16 - 20 July
Week 3: 23 - 27 July

Please Note:

Site visits may take place in the morning or may last a whole day. In consultation with Summer School participants from 2010, we have discontinued the provision of lunch on Mondays, as catering for so many students took up too much of the teaching day.  Instead, we are pleased to offer participants delicious, home-made food at subsidised student prices in our Student Café throughout the week.
