The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has advised against all but essential travel to Italy, with effect from 9th March 2020. This includes the closure of museums, cultural institutions, public gatherings, schools and universities until at least 3rd April 2020. Full information can be found here.

We can confirm the following on our part: 


  • Easter Course (12th – 19th April 2020) in Florence will not run.

  • Summer Course (26th July – 2nd August 2020) is still open for applications.

  • Deposits for the summer course will not be required to secure your place until the FCO confirm that travel to Italy is open again.

  • £50 Early Bird Reduction will still be honoured for applicants who have received a place, but not yet paid a deposit, before the Early Bird deadline (31st March 2020).

Therefore we encourage prospective applicants to continue to request an application form for Classics Abroad 2020 (Summer Course) as usual. We will continue to offer places on a first come, first served basis before starting a waiting list.


We will update this page and current placeholders regularly in the coming weeks. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns at
