Classes take place in the modern buildings of the Francis Close Hall campus, which has a chapel for social events and two attractive areas for relaxing breaks.

Accommodation is located only a minutes' walk from the university’s specialist Art and Design centre, from where our creative activities are taught, and six minutes from the Francis Close Hall campus.

This takes place only once during the two-week programme, on the second week, and lasts from 09.00 to 20.00 (including travel time).

When students return from their excursion they will receive a hot dinner.

The extended excursion replaces the day's evening activity.
