For those interested in books and ideas, Glyndwr University is offering a unique opportunity to sample Higher Education at the Humanities Summer School.

For only £15, new students of all ages will be able to attend an intensive four day course involving a mixture of lectures, workshops and a book club.

Highlights include a lecture on Secrets of the Census: 1911, a talk on Women & the Wild West and an Introduction to Chinese & Complimentary Medicine. There are two book club novels, Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four which will generate lots of heated discussion!

Dr Richard Dover, Head of Humanities at Glyndwr University, said: "This is the third year we have run this very successful Summer School. We’re sure it’ll be a great success and give students a chance to make new friends and discuss ideas and books in a friendly, relaxed setting."

The cost of the course is £15 per person and includes all course materials. An optional two course lunch is available in the University’s on-campus Restaurant 1887 for each of the four days at a total cost of £30. The event runs from July 6-9.
