The University of York campus is within walking distance from the historic center of York, which offers several accommodation options. Another cheap option is to share a temporary rent with your friends. When planning your visit keep in mind that York is a very popular touristic destination.

Registration is now closed. Please contact Nino Grillo, for questions.

The tuition for regular participants is £100.00.

Tuition waiver for ACTL members
The tuition is waived for postgraduate students currently registered at University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh, University of Essex, University of Kent, University of Oxford, Queen Mary University of London, SOAS, UCL and University of York. 

Travel reimbursement plan
Research postgraduate students (i.e. excluding students in taught programmes BA, MA, MSc etc.)  based at these institutions will also be (partially) reimbursed for their accommodation and/or transportation (more details will be available through your supervisor). The amount to be reimbursed is contingent on the number of students attending the school. In order to get reimbursed, you have to keep the original receipts. We will distribute the reimbursement form during the Summer School. Please contact Ross Watson,, in case you have questions.

Note: Since MPhil students from Cambridge and Oxford qualify as students of taught programmes, they are excluded from the tuition waiver and reimbursement programmes.
