Course Description

The Diploma provides an education in theology, ministry and mission in and for a variety of contexts. Many students prepare for professional ministry and mission within churches, including recognised lay and ordained ministries in the Anglican, Methodist, Baptist and United Reformed churches. The programmes serve institutions representing Anglican, Methodist, United Reformed, Baptist, Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches, as well as being open to students from other denominations.

The course prepares people for lay ministry and mission in the world, including those who wish to be more fully equipped for Christian life and service in the world, or simply more informed about the Christian faith. Some students will be preparing for ministry and mission among children and young people within and beyond ecclesial structures. Typically, students will be preparing for service in third sector and statutory organisations as well as in churches.

The Dip HE aims to offer education that is accessible to students with a wide range of educational backgrounds and professional and personal circumstances: many will be mature students, many will be employed and therefore studying part time, many will be in active ministry, while still others will be pursuing the programme as full time residential students.
