The annual summer school is our chance to come together, socialise and study. The precise time table is always finalised at the last moment because it depends very much on which students are attending, and therefore who is giving presentations: we try to give any students who are attending and have conducted research projects a chance to present their work.

Sophia Centre Summer School

Venue: we have space in the friendly surroundings at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Lampeter.

Attendance: the Summer School is only open to Sophia Centre graduates and students, or other individuals who collaborate with the Centre, by invitation. You do not have to attend all four days. Please register for those days you plan to attend so we can plan ahead
