Further Information

Accommodation and Amenities

A variety of standard and en-suite accommodation is available throughout the summer. Costs of standard accommodation will be included in the programme fee but additional charges apply to en-suite options. All the University’s accommodation is either on our city centre campus or within easy walking distance.

Costs and Group Size

Prices are available on request and are based on a minimum group size of 10 from each participating institution. We offer one free faculty place per 10 fee-paying participants. Institutions wishing to send fewer than 10 participants should contact us to see if parties can be combined to create a group of the required minimum size.

We are only able to accept participants that are registered with an educational institution and bookings are arranged via staff of that organisation rather than on an individual basis.

Inclusive Activities

Our aim is that fees for the Summer School will be as inclusive as possible; inclusive of pick up and drop off at Manchester Airport, accommodation, tuition, the majority of accompanied visits and local transport where required, welcome and farewell dinners in a York restaurant. Details of proposed cultural visits are provided in the sample schedules.

Please note that the fee does NOT cover any necessary visas or flights.


Subject to our requirements on minimum group size, our Summer Schools run from the middle of June to late August, launching in 2018. Our illustrative schedules start and end on a Saturday, however we may be able to revise scheduling to suit your transport plans providing that the basic format of one or two weeks is retained. Please contact us to discuss this option.
