Postgraduate residential and non-residential fees

An important part of studying at Schumacher College is our philosophy of 'learning by doing' within the learning community.

As a student we think you will benefit more from living on-site during Term 1 and Term 2 to fully immerse in this important period of study.  It gives you the opportunity to network and collaborate with other students and the many international visitors who come to the College.  We have also seen it can be harder to fully engage in all aspects of College life for students who choose to live off-site. 

However we realise there may be reasons some students do not wish to live on-site and we fully support that. In busy periods on-campus accomodation may be limited so we encourage students to let us know their requirements.

2019-20 Non Residential Students - Considerations

If you are considering non-residential study, please note the immersive nature of the programme. You will be expected to be at the college for all Taught Weeks and to ‘live’ alongside the residential learning community. To see a typical day, please view the typical Post Graduate Day page.

2019-20 Non Residential Fees

Each programme timetable is scheduled independently so that programme coordinators can run their programme of study in a way that best supports the students. The number of Taught and Study Weeks within each programme is therefore variable. The College only charges non-residential students for Taught weeks and this shown below.
