Pre-payment Deposit

If your application is accepted, you will need to provide a pre-payment deposit to secure your place at the Summer School. You will receive an email offering you a place on the course, which will also prompt you for payment and providing details on how to do so. Once you have paid you will officially be offered a provisional place on your chosen course. See our Application Timeline section for more information.
The pre-payment amount is £500, and must be made within 5 working days of us requesting it. After a 14 day cooling off period following payment, the fee is non-refundable. See our Terms and Conditions for full details.
Please note, making your pre-payment and being given a provisional place does not guarantee that the course will run as we rely on recruiting a minimum number of students for each course.

Travel Arrangements

Applicants should not book any flights or private accommodation until they receive a final booking confirmation. We will provide this to you during the first week of April (if your course starts in June), during the first week of May (if your course starts in July), or during the first week of June (if your course starts in August).

Valued Partner Institution Discount

A 10% discount off course fees is available on applications received from students of valued partner institutions. Discounts will be deducted from the final balance. This discount is not available in conjunction with any other discounts.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding our discounts.
