The Benedictus Residential Summer School

FOUNDATIONAL ASPECTS OF EUROPEAN CULTURE
Applications are open. We are now accepting students aged 17 to 25 and day students.
We’ve got a great group of tutors joining us, our focus this year is the Renaissance England and Early Modern Europe so hopefully something unique for international students and UK students alike.
Scholarships are available especially for those coming from abroad as we know it can be expensive to travel to the UK.
During this two week course we will introduce students to the foundational elements of European civilisation, from the ancient world to the formation of Christian Europe. We will study some of the milestones, both intellectual and cultural, that have marked its development; from Plato and More to Raphael and T. S. Eliot, in each case highlighting the thematic connections between the disciplines.
Whether you have just done your AS levels, left school, are on your gap year or are studying at university, if you are keen to discover some of the riches of western Europe in its philosophy, history, art and architecture, then this course is for you.
"I think this summer school has really changed me, both as a student and as a person. I have learnt how interesting studying is and how beautiful it is to study with such people that are in love with what they do. Living in the college has taught me that being a student doesn’t always mean being alone in my room, but also discussing with the others, asking questions, judging a work of art.” Laura Militello
