Short Course Leaders' Area

This section contains very brief guidance for academics and administrators who have responsibility for arranging and organising study trips to the NSC.  

Every year we are delighted to welcome over 80 different short course groups along with their leaders, you, our visiting academics and administrators from Norway. Whilst in York, you will be able to visit the city and university, meet other academics, and should you wish to do so, work in a dedicated leaders’ area at Quantum House. 

As leader, your role will be to:

  1. Recruit students to the short course
  2. Work with us to develop the programme, based around options from a menu chosen via our wishlist (
  3. Disseminate information about the course to your students 
  4. Accompany students on the programme and provide pastoral support

You can find our more about this via our leaders’ google site (

You can find out more about other leaders and their interests, as well as useful tips by clicking the links to the left. 

Due to the pandemic, in 2021-2022, we are offering in-York and on-line courses. Whatever the situation: we will work with you at all stages - whether this is your first time as Leader or you have been Leader many times before - to help make a successful and interesting programme for your students.   You can always contact our Director of Studies, Dr Beck Sinar, at any time via

We'd also like to THANK each and every one of you for your time and support. 

Thank you.
