Students are encouraged, as in past years, to book their places early, as 27 may be accommodated, and demand consistently exceeds availability. The enrolment procedure is:

Enquiries and enrolment forms

Enquiries and enrolment forms should be sent (preferably by email and NOT by courier) to:

Christopher Guichot de Fortis & Julia Poger

By emailing us a completed enrolment form, you are confirming that you will attend the Course in the format you have chosen; your understanding that precautions taken during the in-person version will be appropriate; and that – barring any unforeseen problems such as trees falling on your internet lines – you have the required equipment, time and setting to be able to participate fully in any remote sessions.


Upon notification of acceptance, a £500 (non-refundable) deposit, in the form of a bank transfer, payable to the above, must be sent to guarantee a place. Details will be provided.
