Cambridge Early Music Summer Schools


  1. Each applicant must fully complete the online application form, or the printed version, or a photocopy of it. Completion of the application form commits you to payment of the full course fees once your application has been accepted.
  2. A deposit is payable for each course you apply for, and must accompany each application. The deposit is non-refundable unless we are unable to accept you for the course. Please see the application form for amount of the deposit required. Please try to send the full fee rather than just the deposit if you possibly can: this helps our cash flow enormously, and will save you bank charges, especially if you live outside the UK.
  3. The balance of fees must be received by 31 May, except by special arrangement. Beyond this date, your place cannot be guaranteed unless full payment has been received.
  4. If you have been accepted for a course and we are advised of your cancellation before 31st May, we will retain the deposit but return any additional payment made. If you cancel on or after 31st May, the full fee is forfeited unless we can replace you from the waiting list or you can find a suitable substitute, in which cases only the deposit will be retained by us.
  5. If we cannot initially accept you for the course we will put your name on a waiting list and hold your payment. If a place becomes available we will notify you, and condition 4. (above) will take effect. If you have been put on the waiting list you may withdraw at any time and your full payment will be returned, either at the time of cancellation or soon after the course, as you prefer. Please tell us if you decide to withdraw from the waiting list.
  6. You are advised to insure your own instruments and valuables. Neither Cambridge Early Music nor Sidney Sussex College can be held liable for loss of or damage to your personal property.
  7. Participants who are found to have seriously over-estimated their ability will be invited to listen to small ensemble sessions.
  8. Cambridge Early Music reserves the right to vary without notice the tutors, performers, concert details and course programmes.
  9. Please send a UK-stamped C5 (23 x 16.5 cm) envelope or international postage coupons with your application form, and with any further correspondence: any additional postage costs will be added to your bill. We will acknowledge receipt of your application, by e-mail or post, and notify you if/when you are accepted.
