Introducing our new Access Bursary

The gospel is for all people, and in the church there is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male or female, for we are all one in Christ.

Oak Hill College opened in 1932, founded by educationalist and philanthropist Charles Baring Young. Born out of the ashes of the First World War, the vision for the College was to open up ministerial training for all who are called to it, regardless of background or status. 

As Oak Hill College continues to provide deep-rooted theological training for all who are called to ministry, we long that our life together at College reflects the breadth of God’s people and plans. Our new Access Bursary is designed to provide support for those from under-represented or disadvantaged groups. 

If you are female, or from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background, or are from a low socioeconomic background, you would be eligible to apply for an Access Bursary. The bursary covers your tuition fees, and, for full time applicants, a means-tested grant towards your living expenses. 

For September 2021 there are bursaries available for 10 full time and 10 part time applicants. These can be applied for once an offer of a place at Oak Hill has been accepted. 

If you, or someone you know is interested in training at Oak Hill, and could be assisted by our Access Bursary, our Admissions Team would love to start a conversation with you to discuss any questions you might have. To find out more and get a better feel for the training we offer at Oak Hill, you can join us for our live Online Open Morning on 24 April.
