Course Fees

For all courses, unless otherwise stated, the fees include tuition, residential accommodation, food and field trips. These fees do not represent the full costs, and they are kept at this low level by substantial financial support from The Dartington Hall Trust  and other grant making organisations and donors.  If you can afford to pay more for your course, your donation will be gratefully received and used to subsidise those who have difficulty finding the fee.  

See our bursary and scholarship policy here.

Schumacher College is accredited through the University of Plymouth as an institution for study recognised by the US Government (No.023521), which means that US Federal Aid and similar funds can be applied to our courses.

Scholarships and Bursaries

It is recognised that course fees exceed the means of some students wishing to attend courses at Schumacher College. The College has its own bursary funds and has also received various grants from educational charities to sponsor scholarship schemes.
