Postgraduate Residential and Non Residential Fees and Information

An important part of studying at Schumacher College is our philosophy of "Learning by Doing" within the College community. To fully engage with the Schumacher College experience, we recommend students live on-site for the duration of Term 1 and Term 2, however, it is not mandatory. Living on-site allows students to immerse themselves fully in this important period of study and opens up opportunities for close collaborations and networking within peer groups and visitors to the College.  It is our experience that students who choose to live off-site have found it more challenging to engage as fully in all aspects of college life and within the community, however we understand there may be many reasons you may wish to live independently off-site and we will do our best to support you in your choice.

2018-19 Non Residential Students - Considerations

For those considering a non-residential experience it is important to consider the intense and immersive nature of the programme and the expectation that you will be at the college for all Taught Weeks to ‘live’ alongside the residential learning community.  We have outlined a typical day to support you in your considerations. Please view the typical Post Graduate Day page.

2018-19 Non Residential Fees

Each programme timetable is scheduled independently; supporting Programme Coordinators to run their programme of study in a way that best supports the programme specific learning experience. The number of Taught and Study Weeks within each programme is therefore variable. The College only charge non-residential students for Taught weeks and these variables are reflected in the costs below.
