Since 2013 LEL has been in the position to run a series of postgraduate masterclasses!

Masterclasses generally take the form of a 2-hour session, and there may be some reading suggestions for each masterclass. All PGT students, PGR students, and staff are warmly invited to attend.

There will be occasional masterclasses in 2015-16. For questions about the masterclass programme, email Yuni Kim.
