Postgraduate Diploma Theology

Programme information

 

Mode

Full time students are expected to be in College five days a week, from Monday to Friday, and are required to attend all classes and fellowship group meetings, and to meet the requirements of their particular pathway as regards placements. Chapel takes place every weekday in the middle of the day and full time students are expected to attend every day.  There are no module classes on Wednesdays; on six Wednesdays each academic year, we invite in guest speakers to share their varied ministry experiences with students. We encourage students to treat being a full time student in the same way as having a full time job.

 

Part time students are required to attend all their classes and are expected to attend Chapel on the days that they are in College. Chapel takes place every weekday in the middle of the day.

 

Placements

PGDip students normally do not complete placements. However, Church of England ordinands taking the PGDip are required to complete placements.

Some of your training goals for ministry will be pursued in your placement which will also provide opportunities to develop some of the skills you are learning elsewhere in the curriculum. It will keep you focussed on ministry in the real world. It is college's responsibility to allocate placements,   

Ordinands are required to complete two years of a weekly church placement (MP1.7 and MP2.7).
