STUDENTS enrolling on courses at Schumacher College for courses starting 2020 will pay nearly a third less in a bid by the College to increase accessibility to ecological education.

British and European students will now pay £8,000 a drop of more than £6,000 for tuition fees and international students will see a tuition drop of almost £4,000.

In making the announcement Head of College Dr Pavel Cenkl said that this was a significant step forward for the College:

“This is personally very important to me as I feel that making education more accessible is crucial to the future of our planet."

In addition to the drop in fees, the College is also introducing low-residency programmes to allow students to combine work and study.

Students will be able to remain in country for most of their programme using an online platform for delivery of classes combined with periodic one and two-week residential stays on campus. Residential courses will also be available. A number of the courses will also be available to taken part-time or as postgraduate diploma or as postgraduate certificate.

“There is no typical student that comes to Schumacher College,” said Dr Cenkl, “We hope that by re-designing our programmes in this way we can cater for a wider diversity of students and a greater variety of budgets and study needs.”

A range of bursaries and scholarships will still be available to students who are able to make a case for financial support.  Postgraduate programmes are due to open for expressions of interest and applications later this week for Holistic Science.
