Referral Scheme

London School of Theology accepts applications all year round via our application form which is accessible from any course page on our website. To be eligible for the payment, the person you are referring must be applying for the 2021/22 academic year and list your details in the relevant fields on the application form when they apply for their preferred course. They can apply to any of our undergraduate or postgraduate programmes (that last 12 months or longer), however they need to be a new student to the School.

There’s no limit on the number of students you can refer, but you can only claim one referral reward per registration.


The purpose of this Programme is to recognise and reward current students or alumni who refer new students to the School.


This programme will initially be open between 15/06/2021 and 31/08/2021 and will be reviewed throughout this period. LST may decide to extend the above period and/or amend the terms and conditions at any time.
