Course Description

The PGDip makes our training for gospel ministry available more widely at a postgraduate level. What distinguishes the PGDip from the MA and MTheol (year 4) is that it does not require a research component, although you can do a short research project if you choose.

You take four modules to earn the PGDip. This fits well for many people who want to study and prepare for ministry at a postgraduate level, but for whom independent research is not the right fit.

Course Content

You must take all of:
• One compulsory module: BD6.4 Hermeneutics, Epistemology & the Knowledge of God (30 credits)
• Three elective modules (90 credits in total), at least one of which must be a taught Specialist Master’s-Level module (coded 6.x)
• Postgraduate Research Seminars (non-credit bearing).  These will normally take place monthly on a weekday evening: the details will be announced at the start of the academic year

Elective modules are offered subject to viability (based on class size) and the College reserves the right to withdraw an elective module if there is insufficient interest; not all elective modules are offered every year.

Entry Requirements

The normal entrance requirement is a UK Honours degree in Theology (classified 2.2 or above). Normally, broader degrees in Religious Studies and other subjects will not provide an adequate grounding for the programme. Students without a degree in Theology may qualify for admission if they are able to demonstrate both academic ability and sufficient other theological background. 

Students wishing to take certain modules in Biblical Studies as part of their programme must demonstrate a proficiency in Greek or Hebrew at least to the standard of the pre-requisites identified for the relevant Oak Hill modules. 

Applicants must also satisfy the College that they have a sufficient command of spoken and written English to meet the demands of the programme. An applicant whose first language is not English will be expected to reach, at the point of application to Oak Hill College, a suitable minimum level of English language. We therefore require all applicants whose first language is not English to take an Academic IELTS test and achieve an overall score of 7.0 or above, with no less than 6.5 in each component.
