You are required to make your own travel arrangements to Boston, Oxford, Cambridge, Paris, or St Andrews. Full information on how to go about making travel plans will be provided in a mailing to registered Teacher Seminar participants. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to write or call our office. As a general rule, we recommend that program participants book flights that arrive in Boston, London, Paris, or Edinburgh between 6:00am and 12:00pm on the day the Seminar starts, and depart in the late afternoon on the day the Seminar ends. The first formal commitment on each Teacher Seminar is indicated in the Seminar's individual schedule in the brochure. The last event is breakfast with the Director on the final day.
