Detailed Autumn programme

About our programme
We are delighted to present our Autumn 2024 programme. As well as our extremely popular year long courses, we are excited to introduce new tutors and new courses. The committee are keen to build on the range of what we offer, both in class at HLSI and online. Further suggestions and introductions from our membership will always be appreciated; please let us know if there is something you would like to study that we do not currently offer.

If you have not done so yet, become a member; our fees are currently £140 per year for an individual. If you follow a course for a year, you save a high proportion of the membership fee by paying the lower members’ rate and profit from early enrolment. In addition, you will have access to a wonderful library, free lectures and debates, and the enjoyment of all the periodicals in the members’ room. It really does make sense to become a member!

Please ensure you always log in online before you book courses: this way you are guaranteed to pay the right members’ rate for your course. Log in via the booking button for your course. You can browse and book here.

We are a small organisation that cannot meet its costs without a certain number of students registering for a class. Regrettably we sometimes have to cancel courses for lack of enrolments. We also ask you to think carefully about your personal calendar before you sign up: we cannot provide refunds, other than related to serious sudden medical conditions or similar. There is a standard £25 fee for cancellation administration.

We are committed to making our courses affordable to as wide a group as possible. A number of concessionary places are available at £20 per term/course for people dependent on income-related state benefits. Please contact the office for details.

Please enrol online if possible. If you have difficulties with this, you can enrol in person or by telephone: 020 8340 3343
