In addition to our Higher Education programmes, Schumacher College delivers a unique brand of unaccredited, small-group experiences which embrace learning through head, hand, and heart.

This takes place in the classroom, the gardens, the kitchen – it is part of everything we do. Short course participants join our learning community on courses ranging from a weekend to three weeks. Join us to discover things about yourself, make deep friendships with students from around the world and start a lifelong connection with the College.
