Learning at Dartington
We offer transformative learning delivered by world-class tutors in a truly unique campus experience. If you’re a new student looking for information and resources to support your study, please visit our Resources for Students.
For nearly 30 years, Schumacher College has been at the forefront of engaging ecological, economic, and social challenges, with our portfolio today including our first ever undergraduate programme.
And new for 2020, Dartington Arts School draws on our rich international heritage and our wealth of dance, theatre, music and art studios to provide a dynamic and responsive context for contemporary postgraduate study.
We offer a variety of opportunities for part-time learning, with courses ranging from a few hours, to weekly classes, to longer residential experiences.
Schumacher College delivers a unique brand of small-group, residential experiences which embrace themes of wellbeing and sustainability. Courses take place in the classroom, gardens and kitchen, and range from a weekend to three weeks.
Curating programmes across music, performance, writing, dance and contemporary visual art, our new programme of arts courses aim to animate our rural space with global perspective and profound experiences. They beautifully complement our exisiting Craft Revolution programme in collaboration with over 50 makers from across the South West and beyond.
A variety of other programmes run throughout the year, including four weeks of shared music making, learning and listening at our renowned Dartington Music Summer School & Festival.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, much of our events programme (including our Barn Cinema) is taking a break. Instead, we’re running a virtual programme, which includes the first ever online editions of our long-running Earth Talks.
Schumacher College has an wide range of talks and interviews available on their YouTube channel, and you can read student essays and dissertations on their website. Our online Earth Talk series is also available in full to watch online.
