Every effort has been made to ensure that the course finder is accurate and up to date. However, we cannot guarantee that places will be available for any particular course.


Availability of courses

All information within these pages relates to courses for entry during summer 2017. In addition, the content of individual courses are under constant academic review in light of current circumstances and may change from time to time, with some courses being modified, discontinued or replaced. If the course has been discontinued you will be notified in the early April.


Why courses may change

External factors such as industrial action or the death or departure of staff may make it impossible, or possible only at disproportionate expense, for the Summer School to provide a previously offered option.

Though the Summer School makes every attempt to avoid any changes to our summer programme, we strongly suggest that you do not make any travel arrangements or private accommodation bookings until you receive an unconditional offer to study at the Summer School.


We cannot guarantee availability of individual courses

For all the foregoing reasons, the Summer School reserves the right not to provide any particular course, to make variations to the content or method of delivery of courses, to discontinue courses and to merge or combine courses if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the Summer School.


If the University discontinues any course it will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course and will take all reasonable steps to minimise any disruption which might result from such changes.
