Julia Harvey taught her first Egyptology courses in the 1980s in London for the Adult Education Service. After her move to the Netherlands in 1988, she concentrated on finishing her PhD (1994) and on learning Dutch. In the second half of the 1990s she began teaching a course on Ancient Egyptian Culture for the Leeuwarden Senior Academy, and in 2000 organized her first Dutch group trip to Egypt.

Since 2004 she has taught a course every year for the Groningen Senior Academy (HOVO) and now has a cycle of three. Click the links to see the course programmes (only in Dutch) (Course 1, Course 2, Course 3) The courses each last 10 weeks, and are for 2 hours a week on a Wednesday afternoon. They run from the end of September to early December, with a break for half-term. Julia uses lots of visual material to support her lectures and she actively encourages questions and participation from her students.
