CORFU IS BEAUTIFUL, AFFORDABLE AND SAFE!!
Due to the political and military uncertainty in the Mediterranean region,
in 2003 the School presented a reduced curriculum in a week-long series of
sessions that took place 18-24 June.
To maintain continuity with the highly successful inaugural
School in 2002, a more modest event will occur on 18-24 June 2003.
Features of the original programme will be retained and a field class to
the nearby island of Paxos is added.
