Learning at Dartington
We take a ‘Head, Heart and Hands’ approach to all forms of learning at Dartington.
You’ll see this in action if you’re studying on one of our undergraduate or postgraduate degrees at Schumacher College or Dartington Arts School, enjoying an immersive short course experience, or simply attending one of the many talks, festivals and other events we hold year-round.
We believe that through all this activity, we can address the great challenges of our time through driving positive societal change – and invite you to be a part of it, no matter where you are in life.

A new theatre show questions whether we are allowing ourselves to become distracted by the ‘dead cats’ rather than focussing on who is pulling the strings of power.
