Best Summer Courses in Language Studies 2018. Summary The University of St Andrews International Summer Programme offers students aged 16 to 18 the opportunity to experience lectures and tutorials taught in the Scottish academic tradition. During their time in St Andrews students will become familiar with a number of the same lecturers and tutors that they could potentially encounter while pursuing an undergraduate degree in an ancient institution ranked 1st in Scotland and 3rd in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2018,Times and Sunday Times University Guide 2017). Classics The Classics course allows prospective students to discover aspects of the classical world through the study of language literature, and history. During the three weeks students will be given the opportunity to study English translations of Greek plays and Latin epic poetry to offer insight into both cultures. Daily classes in Latin language will also take place throughout the programme with the aim of students being able to read short passages by the end of the programme. Teaching will follow the Scottish tradition of lectures underpinned by seminars and tutorials. As most students will not have experienced Latin during their time in school no prior knowledge will be assumed and so the Latin will be taught ab initio.

Originally built as a hotel, it has been an integral part of the University since 1921. McIntosh Hall stretches the full length of Abbotsford Crescent,... [-]
