"AHA courses are much better than A level History of Art as a preparation for university work. Exposure to real paintings, sculpture and buildings develops visual alertness. Seeing art in the cities where it was made reveals how it was shaped by its cultural context. Students from AHA have been made aware of many of the problems and excitements of academic Art History before they begin their BA."

*If students travelling from countries other than the UK wish to organise their own flights to Italy, meeting the group there, we will deduct the cost of the flights that would have otherwise been bought.

Flights are purchased by AHA through our travel partner Round the World Experts, ATOL bonded 4267.

The total monies paid will not exceed the fees stated, except where last minute bookings may attract a flight supplement.

We recommend that students bring £33- £35 per day to cover food, drinks and spending money.

Travel insurance can be arranged by contacting Mind the Gap Year. They offer competitive & comprehensive insurance adaptable to each of the courses we offer.

Please ensure that your policy covers medical as well as repatriation expenses and that your policy cancellation cover matches or exceeds the value of the course.  (Please note, the cancellation cover of some policies might be less than the value of the course.)

AHA protects client moneys paid in advance by placing them in a Clients Trust Account as recommended by the tour regulations of the 1992 Consumer Protection Act. Monies are held in this segregated account (and thus not part of the audit of Art History Abroad) until the completion of a course.
