Applications and fees


Applications are open for the 2019 Summer School!  You can use the online application process, or download an application form and send it to the Course Administrator, Tile Cottage, 34b West Avenue, Filey YO14 9BE.

Demand for most courses is high, so please plan to apply early, and in any case no later than 30 June.

Applications should be accompanied by a £75 deposit per person and full fees must be paid by 30 June 2019. Payment may be made by bank transfer (please ask the Administrator/Secretary for the number and address of our account), cheques payable to NLMS, or Post Office Giro. Applicants from outside the UK must use bank transfer. Payment may also be made by instalments between December 2018 and June 2019 (please contact the Administrator if you wish to pay your fees in this way).

Please note that deposits are not refundable, except to those whom the Summer School cannot accept. Half fees will be refunded for cancellations received by 1 July 2019. After that date no fees are refundable, EVEN IF YOU FAIL TO ATTEND. You are therefore advised to take out a holiday insurance for the week.
