Event description

Description

The Macquarie Ancient Languages School (MALS) provides an opportunity to engage with ancient cultures through the study of their languages in a friendly and stimulating environment. Each year we run a Summer Week in the second week of January and a Winter Week in early July.

This Wnter Week MALS is offering intensive courses in Classical Greek, Biblical and Patristic Greek, Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Coptic, Hebrew, and Akkadian. For full course details (course levels, texts, tutors, timetable etc.) please visit the MALS website: www.mals.org.au.

Our week-long session will run on the Macquarie University campus (North Ryde, NSW). It will be led by our team of dedicated tutors, many of whom are postgraduate students embarking on research in relevant fields or language teachers working in the secondary or tertiary sector. For more information about our tutors please visit the MALS website: www.mals.org.au

The School employs methods designed to support adult learners (16 years of age and up) from a wide range of backgrounds. You may, for instance, be a university student wanting to begin your engagement with ancient languages or strengthen existing skills and experience. You may be someone who has always been wanting to learn one of the languages we offer or one of our many MALS veterans who enjoys exploring new texts with like-minded people.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Please see the FAQs on our website: www.mals.org.au for detailed information about transport and how to get to Macquarie University.

Discount parking vouchers for onsite university parking may be purchased by MALS students. Add these to your order when purchasing tickets. Please note that parking vouchers are $7.00 per day and must be added individually (e.g. if you require parking at Macquarie University for the entire MALS Winter Week please order 5 x $7.00 parking vouchers).

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please see the MALS 2017 Winter Week Program (available at www.mals.org.au) for more information about courses, tutors, texts, timetables, catering and fees). You are very welcome to contact our volunteer staff for further information via email (mals@mq.edu.au).

What's the refund policy?

If you are unable to attend the Winter Week please contact MALS via email (mals@mq.edu.au) as soon as possible. Full refunds will be issued for those who notify MALS before 19 June of their inability to attend the Winter Week. MALS will charge a $100 late withdrawal fee for cancelations after 19 June. This withdrawal fee is a new administrative measure aimed at minimising cancellation of classes, and thus disruption to other enrolled students. If you have any questions please email mals@mq.edu.au prior to registering for the event.
