On the CIS Australia January in Dublin, London, Stratford and Oxford program, you will visit 4 significant and historic cities in 17 nights, including a week in London – one of the most visited cities in the world!

The syllabus for this program remains the same regardless of which course the student undertakes. As students are visiting the same sites, attending the same lectures, partaking in the same activities, etc., they are learning the same content. The difference is in their assessment pieces. The topic and focus of a student’s assessment pieces will be based on what course they have chosen.

This program provides an introduction to three major dramatic traditions that will be stimulating, challenging and enjoyable. Classes will be primarily discussion. Special emphasis will be placed on close reading, character development, poetry and major themes. Students will also visit key historical sites to better understand the political and intellectual circumstances in which these traditions developed and continue to exist. Special attention will be paid to Shakespeare as a writer for the stage and a man of the theatre, with visits to theatres to hear and see plays, backstage tours, and critical discussions of directorial, design and acting choices.
