Residential Courses

Bespoke courses for international high schools, university students and special interest groups

There’s no better place to study William Shakespeare than in his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon. In addition to the expertise of our lecturers, you'll have the opportunity to access the largest publicly accessible collection of Shakespeare related material in the world, as well as our extensive performance archive. While you’re here you can also visit Shakespeare’s family homes as well as the theatres of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Though aimed primarily at high school (aged 15 upwards) and university students, they are also enjoyed by special interest groups such as teachers and Shakespeare societies across the world. 

This experience for these students is monumental. A unique immersion into literary and historic culture.
