Schumacher College


Schumacher College is an international college for ecological studies offering masters programmes, a new undergraduate programme in Regenerative Food and Farming, short courses and a horticulture residency.

The College has a rich history as a trailblazer in ecological learning, and is this year celebrating its 30th birthday.

We focus on interactive and experiential education to develop practical skills and strategic thinking required to face 21st century challenges. Students work together in small groups which embrace the learning principles of head, hand, heart. Many of our courses feature guest teachers who are world-renowned thinkers, activists and practioners.

We are a vegetarian college and we continually strive to be as self-sufficient as possible. At present we grow almost 50% of the food we eat, the rest we source as locally as possible. All students and staff are involved with cooking, cleaning and gardening which helps to foster a sense of community and is a great opportunity to mix with all members of the College.
