Postgraduate Programmes

If still more education is to save us, it would have to be education of a different kind: an education that takes us into the depth of things. E.F. Schumacher

Postgraduate studies at Schumacher College are truly unique and transformative journeys of learning for both inner and outer transition. We believe in a radical and rigorous approach that develops the whole person through intellect, intuition, emotion, ethics and practice. We value trans-disciplinary approaches, different ways of knowing and creative forms of expression. Closing date for receipt of applications is Tuesday 3rd May 2016.
