A Note on Fees:

“£168 – not a sum easily found by everyone” — wrote The Guardian of the Pre-University Course fees in 1968.

For over 50 years, our fees have kept roughly the same relationship to a term at an independent boarding school. Fees include return travel to Italy, accommodation in the centre of Venice, with breakfast and 3 course dinner daily. Additionally they include a supportive resident staff, a visiting faculty of distinguished lecturers coming out to Venice from England and a series of privileged and expensive private visits to palaces, museums and churches
