An immersive living and learning experience
Herstmonceux Castle, the home of the Bader College, combines the history of one of the UK’s most architecturally significant 15th century castles, with the cutting-edge learning tools of a modern university campus.
Highlights of the Upper Year Fall Program:

Be part of a small, vibrant community, where all members are encouraged and supported to fulfil their academic potential and discover their place in the world.
Benefit from small class sizes offering you graduate-style contact with your instructors.
Our outstanding Experiential and Active Learning program and career-ready workshops encourage you to develop the skills you need to succeed through active participation and personal contact with primary sources.

Benefit from one-on-one access to expert supervisors in your field.
Our on-site professional staff, including a full-time Student Success & Learning Development Advisor, offer academic skills-building sessions to help you plan your studies and manage your time effectively.
Go beyond the classroom
In addition to lectures and guest speakers, students studying at Bader College have the added benefits of embedded experiential and active learning opportunities that take them out into the local area and beyond to see their studies in action. At the Castle, special emphasis is placed on learning by doing. Our outstanding experiential and active learning program and career-ready workshops encourage you to develop the skills you need to succeed through active participation and personal contact with primary sources, outside of a traditional classroom environment.
The Bader College experience is deliberately international and intercultural, to help you develop an understanding of what it means to be part of a globalized world. You will have opportunities to travel independently, with London being within two hours of the campus.
The highlight of the Fall semester is a five-day trip to Oxford and London. Plus, on weekends without EALs, Bader College often puts on pay-as-you-go trips to places such as Vimy Ridge in France, London’s West End for musicals, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and Stonehenge in Salisbury.
