Septimana Latina 2021

Septimana Latina 2021 — postponed

It is with deep regret that we have to announce the postponement of the Septimana Latina to a date yet to be determined. Unfortunately, the ongoing restrictions in response to the pandemic make the organisation of a large group trip impossible in the near future. We are all very sorry about these news, but please keep in mind that it is a postponement, not a cancellation. We will announce the new plans and dates for the Septimana Latina once the situation becomes clearer. In the meantime, thank you to everyone who applied and we will be looking forward to seeing you in Rome as soon as possible!

The OLP Committee, 24.12.20.

We are delighted to present our third annual Septimana Latina. A highlight of the year for Oxford Latinitas since its very inception, the Septimana is an intensive immersive classics study abroad week, held entirely in Latin and ancient Greek. This year’s Septimana Latina will be happening from 14th till 20th March 2021, at a villa near Rome (Villa Palazzola).

The theme of the study week will be Utopia. Among the various activities planned are scholae rhetoricae, scaenae in the ancient languages, an intensive course in spoken ancient Greek, singing carmina in Greek and Latin, and more!

The cost of the week is £550, including tuition, full board, and an excursion. There is a limited number of scholarships available. Admissions are highly competitive, so we advise an early application. The application deadline is 8th January. Please get in touch with any questions at
