Ransackers Association

ransckerLogoThe Ransackers Association’s gives older students who have not previously had the opportunity of higher education, the chance to engage in college life.
 
People aged 50 plus apply to a local college with the backing of The Ransackers Association, to undertake a research project of their own choosing. Tutorial, IT and study skills support are provided to enable older students to participate fully in academic study.
 
The Ransackers Association is backed by Baroness Sally Greengross and is now running at four adult educational residential colleges, Ruskin in Oxford, Fircroft in Birmingham, Northern near Barnsley, South Yorkshire and Hillcroft (women only) in Surrey.
 Students can attend the University of Brighton and University of Strathclyde Glasgow as day students, and ‘taster’ courses are being offered by Queen Margaret University Edinburgh and Coleg Harlech in Wales. LINKS TO ALL
