Sorry, this course is not currently available on the website. The usual reason for this to happen is that the course is either no longer running or has already run. If you believe this to be incorrect please contact us using our enquiry form.

Below are a selection of courses that we are running, based on the subject of the course you were looking for:

  • Brontes (Online)
    How did three sisters living apparently secluded, eventless lives write such original, passionate and dramatic novels and poetry? Who were the Brontës, what fed their imaginations, and what makes their writing so haunting and intense?
  • Jane Austen`s Emma
    Despite being published 200 years ago, Jane Austen’s Emma remains in print, on screen, and online. This day school considers the qualities that have made the story of a heroine whom Austen expected no one but herself to like enduringly popular.
  • The Modern American Novel: An Introduction (Online)
    Some of the most wonderful fiction in English is by American writers. In this course we shall study five key novels of the twentieth century  by Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Silko, Morrison and Roth.
  • Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education
    Students can use credit obtained from weekly classes, short online courses, linked day schools, practical weekends and attendance at the Oxford University Summer School for Adults to count towards gaining an award from the University of Oxford.
  • Trollope, Eliot, Dickens and Hardy: Reading Victorian Fiction (Online)
    Madness, hilarity, doubt and devotion are just some of the many aspects of life explored in the huge wealth of Victorian fiction. This course makes the great creative energy present in 19th-century writers accessible through reading a mixture of novels.
