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:

Sat 26 Jan: A sustainable feast with Rohan Anderson

Sat 2 & Sun 17 Feb: How to be creative

Sun 3 Feb & Sun 24 Mar: How to have better conversations

Sat 9 Feb: Urban sketching with Oslo Davis

Sat 9 Feb & Sat 23 Mar: How necessary is a relationship?

Sun 10 Feb: How to make love last

Sat 16 Feb & Sun 17 Mar: How to realise your potential

Sun 17 Feb & Sun 10 Mar: How to find a job you love

Sat 23 Feb: How to face death

Sun 24 Feb: How to fill the god shaped hole
