In-person short courses

Join us for face-to-face learning

From single day events to short courses that meet weekly

Explore a topic in depth over one or two days or extend your knowledge over several weeks with a weekly class or lecture series. The majority of our in-person classes meet in Oxford; a few are held at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Maidenhead.

  • In-person day and weekend events: one or two-day courses which meet in Oxford or at Norden Farm for face-to-face teaching. Some are livestreamed so you can watch online if you can't attend in person. Most of these courses are non-assessed and involve no coursework.

  • In-person weekly classes: courses of 5, 10 or 20 weeks duration. Teaching takes place at Ewert House in Summertown or at Rewley House in central Oxford. Most of these courses require coursework and are assessed.

  • Lecture series: enjoy a weekly series of lectures on a given topic in the Lecture Theatre at Rewley House, Oxford. No coursework is required.

  • Summer schools: join us for a study holiday in Oxford – for personal enrichment, academic progression or professional development. Many summer schools can be taken for credit; others require no coursework, and are non-assessed.

Enrolments may close up to one week prior to the start date of the course. We recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
