This weekend on Italian language, literature and culture forms part of the series 'A Cultural Grand Tour of Italy' each time dedicated to a different author and region.

These courses, conducted primarily in Italian, offer those with a fair or good knowledge of Italian (see entry requirements for more information regarding level) the opportunity not only to practice and improve their language skills, but also to read, translate and discuss a selection of work by Italian writers and to watch original audiovisual material related to the topics of the course.

The weekend 12-14 July 2019 will focus on the work by Lucio Mastronardi (1930 - 1979) and the territory of Vigevano, in Lombardy.

Fees and bursaries

Fees

Fees for weekend courses cover tuition, meals (except breakfast) and refreshments, including morning coffee and afternoon tea during teaching hours, and travel on excursions (but not entrance fees to properties visited). Accommodation can be booked for an additional fee and includes breakfast.

VAT does not apply to course fees and there is no service charge (gratuities to domestic staff are left to your discretion). It is sometimes possible to stay for extra nights or extra meals, or to invite guests to meals, at an additional cost and by prior arrangement with the Admissions team.

If you do not wish to pay in full at the time of booking, you may pay a 15% registration fee as a deposit by credit/debit card. The balance will automatically be taken two weeks before the start of the course. If you wish to pay by cheque, you will need to pay in full when the booking is made.

You may cancel a course booking at any time. After the 14 day cancellation period has expired, the standard ICE course cancellation policy will apply. Please view our refund and cancellation policy for further details.
