Who comes?

one of our studentsA Global Community

People aged from 18 to 90, from all over the world, come to the College.  Since it was was founded in 1991 thousands of alumni from over 90 countries have joined our global family.

Many of them have reached a pivotal moment in their lives when and want more sustainable lifestyles and positive human relationships. They have broad areas of personal interest and expertise gathered from the field or academia. Some are already very active in creating a fairer world others feel they are alone in this work and are looking for a broader community for support, co-creation and inspiration. This is what Schumacher College can provide.  

Many people experience a deep personal transformation here and many return on a regular basis. 

As numbers on our short courses and postgraduate programmes are small compared to other colleges, the atmosphere is intimate and friendly. In addition we have apprentices and volunteers who come to the college to support staff.  There is a small team of about 30 staff and academic faculty, in addition to visiting teachers, contributors and facilitators.
