Entry Requirements

Normally you should have a good Honours degree (2:1 or above) for the MTh, in a theological, biblical or related subject. A further theological degree (e.g. a British MA in Biblical or Theological Studies) is normally required for MPhil or PhD registration.

For a North American Master’s degree, you should have a GPA of at least 3.6 for the MTh and at least 3.8 for the MPhil.

Candidates registered for the MTh or the MPhil whose work proves to be of the appropriate standard may (with the agreement of their supervisor(s) and the Director of Research) transfer of registration, to MPhil or to PhD respectively.

Registration for a PhD programme: as is normal in UK universities, you will initially be registered for ‘MPhil with a view to PhD’. Formal transfer to PhD registration normally takes place when you are about a year (of full-time study) away from its completion.

Those seeking registration with qualifications other than those indicated above should write to the Research Programmes Administrator (sandra.khalil@lst.ac.uk) at London School of Theology, giving full details of their qualifications and (where appropriate) providing photocopies of relevant transcripts.

If English is not your first language you will need to arrange to take the British Council’s English test. We cannot confirm your place until you have produced an IELTS test report and reached a score of 7.0 (all individual elements should be 6.5 or higher) or an equivalent English language proficiency report. There are many test centres, easily sourced on the internet. Your proficiency in English will also be considered at interview.
