The Isle of Man Experience

Participants arrive in the Isle of Man on a Sunday evening and move into a hotel on the seafront in Douglas, the capital, about a mile away from the Nunnery (the teaching facility where the programme is conducted).

For the next week they will be picked up by bus each morning for classes to start at 8:45 AM. The working days are intense, but for the first three evenings, there is no formal programme scheduled, giving participants time to get over jetlag and absorb what has been taught during the day.

Tynwald Tour Lo ResOn Wednesday evening, participants will meet prominent people in the Isle of Man who are active in government and the financial sector at a reception held at Government House and on the Thursday evening will enjoy a tour of the Isle of Man's Tynwald Chambers before a Reception with the Isle of Man Government and Business Community.


Saturday is another intense working morning with a tour of the Isle of Man in the afternoon when participants can enjoy the Island's dramatic scenery.

Sunday morning is completely free for church and rest. After lunch the participants will fly to London and onward to Oxford for the second half of the programme.
