Ruskin College offers residential adult learning to people of all ages and backgrounds. With historic links to the University of Oxford, we offer university-standard education and facilities, without the need for qualifications.
For many of our adult learners,
financial, personal or social obstacles have made it impossible for them to
take educational chances earlier in their lives. Ruskin exists to put that
We have courses to suit everyone, whatever the
situation: whether it’s Further Education, Higher Education, getting
into employment or simply a desire to develop personal interests.
For us, education is about social change too. By transforming the lives of adults who deserve a second chance in education, we know that they will make their communities better places too.
We are no ordinary college. Everything we do has a social purpose and we take pride in our continued activism in search of a fairer society, which all started when we were established 120 years ago.
