The Ransackers project provides an opportunity for people over the age of 55, who have a positive view about ‘growing’ older & have not previously benefited from further education.

Participating students spend one term at one of the colleges participating in the project and with the help of a tutor, produce an independent original research project in an area of personal interest.

Participating colleges:

  • Fircroft College (Birmingham)
  • Ruskin College (Oxford)
  • Hillcroft (women only) (Surrey)
