Course Description

The Theology & Worship programme is designed for students who have obvious gifts in music but who come without a confident grasp of general musicianship skills or have limited experience in music theory and notation.

This programme is for those who want to advance their music skills and understanding to a high level and at the same time wish to be theologically equipped. Applicants are likely to come from a more contemporary music background.

We are committed to equipping confident, theologically aware and spiritually attuned worship designers, facilitators, music directors and leaders of musical worship in order to serve effectively in the local church and elsewhere, and to train and release others in ministry.

We encourage breadth in worship expression, promoting diverse forms of music and corporate worship that celebrate both our rich heritage and contemporary expression. We explore and encourage the contributions of other cultures and engage with varied expressions of Christian spirituality.

The faculty members include leading thinkers and practitioners in music and worship. Their combined experience includes facilitating worship at major national and international conferences, long-term local church ministry, cross-cultural music mission, producing worship resources, and performing world- class music in both classical and contemporary contexts. This experience is combined with a rigorous approach to the integration of theological and biblical insights based on a wealth of academic study.

Entry Requirements

We welcome applications from instrumentalists or vocalists with no formal music qualifications. Particular importance is attached to the interview and audition where we will look at your potential to undertake the music requirements of the course. A Music Information Profile that gives specific details of an applicant’s musical experience will be required prior to the audition.

For international students an audition-recording is acceptable should you not be able to attend an audition on campus.

In addition, students must demonstrate the ability to undertake successfully an undergraduate programme of this nature. This will normally mean two A levels plus three different GCSE passes at grade C or above (one GCSE must be English), or equivalent alternatives for students under 21.

Mature students (aged 21 and over) without these qualifications will be considered individually. If you do not meet the above entry requirements, please contact the Engagement Team who will help you to identify a suitable programme of study.

Applicants for whom English is not their first language must take the Secure English Language Test (SELT).
