About Classes at The School of Life
Our Core Curriculum is at the heart of what we do, and believe in, at The School of Life. These classes address the great challenges of life, and will offer you insight, guidance and companionship.
They follow 4 broad themes: Work, Love, Self-knowledge, and Culture.
You will be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals. These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity.
