The School of Life's new Australian campus announces its summer term classes

Looking for a bit of inspirational guidance over the summer? For a school offering something a little different, try the classes from the School of Life – the brainchild of philosopher Alain de Botton (read his interview with Time Out), who set the London school up in 2008. Melbourne is the first international campus; Collingwood, to be precise. From the 26th of January it will host classes by experts (priced per class), giving you more solid grounding in the following areas:
