Ruskin College is an educational institution located in the most famous university city - Oxford. The college bears the name of the famous poet, critic, artist and art theorist John Ruskin. Initially, an educational institution was founded for representatives of the working class who were denied entry to the university. Ruskin College is a symbol of the working education of England. Today, Ruskin College specializes in providing educational opportunities for adults with or without low qualifications. The main objectives of the institution:

  • To provide assistance in obtaining education to people in difficult situations
  • Not only to educate students, but also to educate them. Many students say that studying at Ruskin College will forever change their lives.

The learning process is divided into three levels - the first, second and third. If the applicant at the time of admission is in the status of unemployed, training at the first and second level will be free for him, the third with partial payment. The distribution into groups depends on the age and level of knowledge of students.

To quickly master the profession, short-term courses lasting two to three months are available:

  • Leadership courses
  • Self-realization courses
  • English courses, mathematics and information technology.

All graduates receive an invitation to the Ruskin Fellowship club: the essence of the organization in the union of former students around the college, mutual assistance, support of friendships. Often club members help each other in finding work. Ruskin Fellowship is a true club with a clear division of responsibilities, leadership, status and membership fees.
