Class arrangement during COVID-19

The COVID-19 situation may still be fluid and constantly affect class arrangements in the coming months. The health and safety of our students will always be our top priority. To ensure that students’ academic progress is not affected, the School may substitute face-to-face classes with online teaching if necessary in the event that face-to-face classes cannot be held. Our respective Programme Teams will contact the students concerned with details of such arrangements as necessary.


- Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis.
- ONLINE ENROLMENT IS PREFERRED.
- No refunds or transfers to a different class will be approved.
- Course will be confirmed subject to sufficient enrolment.
- A detailed schedule will be emailed to every student before class commencement.

This course is designed to cater for complete beginners who have an interest in the Latin language. The emphasis will be on developing a basic reading ability but with some oral work in addition. The course will also deal with cultural aspects of the ancient Latin-speaking world, their traditions and way of living. PowerPoint presentations to be used in the course are available at https://linguae.weebly.com/latin-space-i.html  by scrolling down to the heading `Teaching Aids for Latin via Ovid' . The course is not exam-based.

  • Swapping between parallel groups (if any) is not allowed under any circumstances.
