Looking for something to sink your teeth into as the summer holiday winds down? How about a thrilling three-lecture course analysing "The Monsters We Deserve: Vampires in Selected Literature And Film"? Or a healthy look at the latest information on the genetic causes and prevention of sudden death in infants, young people and adults: "Sudden Cardiac Death: What Everyone Should Know".
These are just two of the stimulating courses with spaces still available in the University of Cape Town's 63rd annual Summer School, from Monday, 21 January to Friday, 1 February 2013.
The annual Summer School programme, run by the Centre for Open Learning (COL), draws on different disciplines, including language, history, philosophy, medicine, science, conservation, and practical writing and art. Courses are open to all regardless of educational qualifications.
There will also be two free courses on offer: "Digital Citizenship: Rights and Responsibilities" examines issues around social media, digital identity and afterlife (what happens to your online information when you die) and the benefits of the digital world. And you can get a taste of a different culture in "Xhosa in 45 Minutes". No registration is needed for either of these courses.
