We are sorry to announce that we are postponing our summer school programme for the time being due to concerns of potential risks of travel arising from the news surrounding the coronavirus. Obviously we are very disappointed with the situation, but we feel this is the best way to proceed at the moment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
