The full course fee for 2018 is £635 for a shared (usually double) room, £670 for a single room. In addition there are a limited number (38) of single en suite rooms available in the new building for which the fee is £780. These prices include all tuition fees and full board and lodging. For non-residents the cost will be £515 which includes all tuition fees and all meals except breakfast.



All applicants are required to pay a deposit of £100 either by cheque (cheques made payable to ‘Durham Classical Summer School’) or online, which will be refunded if the application is unsuccessful or withdrawal becomes necessary before cancellation charges apply (7 days before the course, after which the full cost of residence at St. John’s will apply, although the college is prepared to take individual circumstances into account). Similar terms will apply for anyone who has to leave early.


We are able to offer a number of bursaries thanks to the subsidies from our sponsors. It is hoped that adequate assistance will be available for everyone who needs it. Grants can also be obtained from elsewhere and we would urge everyone to apply to LEA, school or university as well as to the Summer School so that we can distribute our limited funds to those who are most in need.
