CORONAVIRUS UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2020

Applications for School of English and Culture summer courses for 2021 are now open. If you were previously booked on to a 2020 course and did not ask for your booking to be cancelled, your place is secure and your application can be completed at your earliest convenience.


In the current climate of uncertainty, we realise that circumstances may alter between now and next summer. We will be as flexible as we possibly can if Covid-19 means your plans need to change and you can request a refund at any time up to 30 June 2021 without losing your deposit.


You can also rest assured that we will operate in line with government guidelines around social distancing and safety to ensure the wellbeing of all our guests and staff.

Online Summer Course

Many thanks to all those who were a part of our very first Open Minds Online summer course.

It has been wonderful to have an opportunity to get together over Zoom and hear so many interesting contributions around such a range of topics and to continue to bring together members of our MCSEC community.

Our summer course was made up of eight weekly modules and ran from 1st June 2020 - 31st July 2020, with a week-long break at the end of June.

Modules:

The weekly modules provided materials, prompts and inspiration for students to work on at home before joining a group discussion at the end of the week.
