1. Can I study the BA in Theology and BA in Youth & Community Work with Applied Theology by distance learning?
The equivalent of the first year of the BA in Theology may be studied by Distance Learning. (Grades for each prescribed course must be 50% or above before a student can be considered for admission to the second year of the BA in Theology).
It is not possible to take the whole degree by Distance Learning.
The BA in Youth & Community Work with Applied Theology cannot be studied in a distance learning format due to the integrated practical placement, study and research involved.
2. Can I start on a Distance Learning course at any time?
Yes, once you have gone through the application process. You can find an application form for Distance Learning on our Application Forms page, or for more information contact Alison Nicolson at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Do you have any courses apart from the degree programmes?
On Monday mornings we offer classes in a variety of subjects for anyone who is interested in exploring the topic or issues on offer.
There are no academic entrance requirements for these classes. However, as these classes are at interest level and they do not count towards academic entry qualifications, though they would be of advantage to anyone considering further study.
4. What in-service training does the college offer?
It is possible to study a negotiated package of undergraduate courses and to reflect upon your own ministry, to suit your own study and ongoing training needs. For more information and advice, contact email@example.com
5. How long will it take to do a BA in Theology programme part-time?
The time period is negotiable and highly dependent on how many courses you can study per semester.
6. Can I do the programme and continue in ministry?
There is no easy answer to this question. You should consult with people who know you and your ministry. You should also arrange to talk with a member of the academic staff to discuss the demand of the programme both in a full time and part time format.
7. Do you run classes to train pastors?
Several Churches use our College to help train their pastors to one level or another. Many of our students continue into pastoral ministry, either taking further studies with their particular denomination or entering into independent churches. The programme includes courses on preaching and pastoral care.
8. Can I come into any programme I want?
Programmes are only available subject to successful completion of the application process including an interview. Courses at levels 2 to 4 are subject to the BA Programme Leader’s discretion. All courses are subject to availability and class size.
9. Can I transfer from one degree programme to another?
While some core BA studies courses are taken by BA Theology and BA Youth & Community Work students, assessments, length of courses and learning outcomes are different. The nature of the BA Youth & Community Work programme with its set pattern of study and placement means that the first year’s work is essential for progression to second year.
To transfer from the BA Youth & Community Work programme to the BA Theology may require extra courses to be taken in order to fulfill programme requirements.
10. What careers can you go into with a Theology degree?
Former students have gone into Church Ministry, youthwork, teaching, lecturing, administration, work with mission agencies or back into their former professions with newly acquired transferable skills and an enhanced ability to serve their local church or community.
11. Do you offer web-based learning?
We do not currently offer any web-based learning.
