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.
On 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.travel
