Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update In view of the continued uncertainties and travel restrictions due to Covid-19 and having consulted our partners in the U.K. and around the world, we have reluctantly decided that it will not be possible this summer to run courses that are worthwhile and of our usual high quality. We hope to welcome you on our 2022 summer courses. We will be in touch shortly regarding deposits and fees paid. ×
