Course Options

Please note that you can choose to undertake the course with or without assessment. Despite being one of our regular undergraduate modules, only our current students who are already registered with Middlesex University, our validating body, can be awarded academic credits for completing the course. In registering to attend the course we ask you to accept the following terms and conditions:

  1. I wish to undertake the course for Personal Development reasons only.
  2. I accept that I will receive no academic credits, either from London School of Theology or Middlesex University, if I successfully complete the module (with or without assessment).
  3. If I successfully complete the course with assessment, this may potentially be considered for APEL purposes (Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning), but most institutions including LST will consider this in the context of other broader experience also being available.
