The Theology programme gave me a fantastic opportunity to explore the diversity and depth of the Christian faith. The faculty are not only brilliant in their delivery and support, but also show authentic care for the students, whilst learning together has been a wonderful experience.
The programme addresses our changing cultural and intellectual climate and how the Christian faith relates incisively, relevantly and practically to society. You will also have the privilege of studying alongside and interacting with students and staff from diverse backgrounds and denominations, which enriches the whole study programme. In addition, you will experience personal spiritual growth through the taught programmes, and also through the community and extracurricular activities organised by the student body.
Whether you study on campus in London or remotely online, you will take the same modules, meet the same outcomes, undertake the same assessments, benefit from quality teaching and tutoring provision and graduate with the same degree.
All undergraduate Theology students can study the same programme on campus, online or in any blended combination of the two delivery modes.
In your first year, you will study three complementary strands of theological thinking: Biblical Studies; Christian History, Doctrine and Theology; and Christian Life, Ministry and Mission. In the second year, two-thirds of modules are compulsory and one-third are optional. In the third year, one-quarter of the content is compulsory.
For full-time students it is expected that you will be able to commit around 40 hours per week to your studies. For students studying on campus lectures will take place between 9am – 6pm on Mondays to Fridays. This normally equates to around 12 hours of lectures and 30 hours of personal study time.
For students studying online we also recommend a commitment of 40 hours per week to enable you to complete the necessary work.
For part-time students it is expected that you will be able to commit around 20 hours per week to your studies. For students studying on campus lectures will take place between 9am – 6pm on Mondays & Tuesdays in Year 1 and Thursdays & Fridays in Year 2. For students studying online we also recommend a commitment of 20 hours per week to enable you to complete the necessary work.
Full-time students are expected to complete the BA in 3 years. Part-time students are expected to complete the BA in 6 years.
Students enrolling for the Certificate, the Diploma or the BA Degree must demonstrate the ability to undertake an undergraduate programme of this nature successfully. This will normally mean two A levels plus three different GCSE passes at grade C or above (one GCSE must be English), or equivalent alternatives for students under 21.
Mature students (aged 21 and over) without these qualifications will be considered individually. If you do not meet the above entry requirements, please contact the Engagement Team who will help you to identify a suitable programme of study.
Applicants for whom English is not their first language must take the Secure English Language Test (SELT).
We now offer more choice to potential students wishing to study undergraduate Theology.
