Course selection

The courses are described in the printed Programme of Courses and in the Course List on the main menu. The description includes details of the course venue and any course fees.

If you are applying before the August course allocation, please log in to the members’ area and select your courses online if at all possible, as this significantly reduces the administrative work in the Office.

If you are applying later for a vacant place on a course, please contact the Office.
