The deadline for booking a place on this course has passed. Please use the 'Ask a Question' button to register your interest in future or similar courses.

Take the opportunity to sample the Silver Latin poetry of Lucan, Valerius Flaccus, Silius Italicus and Statius as you read about Rome’s civil wars of the first century BC, sail with the Argonauts, follow the fortunes of Hannibal and hear the tale of the mythical attack upon Thebes.

Please note that texts are unadapted and students therefore require a sound understanding of Latin grammar and syntax; the course is suitable both for those who wish to renew their acquaintance with Latin literature or those who wish to study it in greater depth in a friendly atmosphere.


Fees and bursaries


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).


Payment is by credit/debit card unless otherwise arranged. You can either pay in full at the time of booking, or pay a 15% registration fee as a deposit; the balance will automatically be taken two weeks before the start of the course. 


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.


The Cambridge University Press (CUP) Bursary Fund offers a bursary of 50% of the course fee to applicants who teach in a UK state school or state-funded further education institution, applying to study a day school, weekend course or online course.
