GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE SUMMER SCHOOL 

REGISTRATION

All students attending the Summer School are expected to attend registration. Details about registration are included in this handbook. If you are unable to attend, please notify the administrator. 

COURSE FEES

The fee for the TSE Summer School for 2024 will be £700, which includes the provision of documentary material, lunches and coffee and tea, and costs of excursions to Little Gidding and Burnt Norton. Day passes can be purchased as availability allows. 

COURSE FEE PAYMENT

Students are personally responsible for the payment of fees and it is a condition of enrolment that all fees must be paid by 1 July. The registration of any student who has not paid the course fees by 1 July may be canceled. 

COURSE CANCELLATION/WITHDRAWALS

Students should notify the Summer School administrator as soon as possible if they wish to withdraw from the School. 

Non-attendance at the start of the Summer School or cancellations made after 1 July will be non-refundable. 

COURSE ATTENDANCE

Students are expected to attend all classes unless feeling unwell. 

A student who is unable to attend a session should inform the tutor and/or administrator. 

If a student is absent from a course without notification for more than one day, the administrator will enquire into the circumstances. 

PENALTIES

Any student who attends fewer than eight sessions may be regarded as not having completed the course; if so, they will not receive an attendance certificate. 

ATTENDING THE  PROGRAMME FOR ACADEMIC CREDIT

While the School will provide Certificates of Attendance, it cannot offer academic credit. However, if students enroll in an independent study course with a supervisor in their home institutions, the academic programme of the School may constitute a significant part of the home course. If arranged in advance, the School may request a seminar leader to provide written evaluation of student participation and performance to the home institution. 

 

Lecturers and seminar leaders are not expected to mark or otherwise formally assess essays submitted by the student to his/her home institution. The Summer School retains the right to appoint someone other than the chosen seminar leader to provide written feedback. 

SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

Scholarship recipients are expected to attend all seminar meetings, day-trips, and regular daily events (except for those marked optional). 

Scholarship recipients agree to complete the School Evaluation within 10 days of the School’s conclusion. 

Students may apply for scholarships as often as they like, but because the application pool is large, the policy of the Summer School is to limit each applicant to two scholarships. Students who have already received two scholarships may still apply but may be put on a waitlist. 

BEHAVIOR AND CONDUCT  

Participants are expected to conduct themselves with the utmost personal rectitude and professional courtesy. The School will not permit verbal harassment, verbal assaults, unwanted sexual advances, discriminatory practices, or other breaches of appropriate conduct. For a full and detailed code, to which the Summer School subscribes, outlined by the International T. S. Eliot Society, please see this site: https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/tseliotsociety/who-we-are/society-code-of-conduct/. Please report concerns about behavior to the Director or any member of the Executive Team.
