There are three one-hour classes a day, two in the morning, one in the late afternoon. The teaching is expert. Class sizes rarely get into double figures. There is plenty of study space, outside of one’s room.This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 4.-library.jpg

Afternoon discussion groups/help sessions are available. Guest speakers on a wide range of classical subjects provide evening entertainment, as does the College bar and the town (ten minutes walk away).
