Art History Summer University Applications NOW OPEN!

We are very excited to announce that applications for Summer University 2017 are now open! Further information about the application process can be found on our website. The deadline for applications is Friday 26th May 2017.

Summer University runs from Monday 3 to Monday 6 July 2017. This year’s theme is Art and Identity looking at art history in its contexts, as well as studying art from across the world in a variety of London collections, including our very own Courtauld Gallery.

Summer University is specifically designed to give Year 12 students an opportunity to spend four days experiencing student life at a world-class university, The Courtauld Institute of Art, with its own beautiful art gallery.


You will work closely with distinguished academics, gallery curators and professionals, as well as current and recent undergraduate students from The Courtauld. It is a great addition to any UCAS form, no matter the subject you plan to study, and an invaluable taster of what the arts and humanities offer at higher education.

To apply to take part you must be currently studying at a UK state school or FE college, with an interest in finding out more about Art History and the possibilities of studying the subject at degree level.

This is a free non-residential course designed for students from non-selective state schoo4ls or colleges.

The deadline for applications is now Friday 26th May 2017.

Please email Helen Higgins at to find out more.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
