Non-residential training across two learning centres
Many of our ordinands have answered a call to become ordained later in life.
A non-residential approach means that you can train without having to move away from home and family.
Choose from convenient evening classes at our London city centre campus or teaching days at our rural Kent campus, with the option to attend classes online.
Choose flexible study pathways to suit you
Answer your call to ministry with a pathway to study that works with your goals and ongoing responsibilities.
Part-time study options allow ordinands to effectively fit study around work, family and volunteering, with fewer classroom and study hours required week on week.
Plus, the full-time mixed-mode pathway allows for a more significant level of church involvement through an ongoing placement.
Benefit from blended classrooms with ordinands and students
As a college, we are very lucky to have such a diverse student community. You will learn and train alongside ordinands from all walks of life and Church of England traditions.
You will also have the opportunity to attend lectures and tutorials with both fellow ordinands and students of theology who are pursuing learning for their own reasons.
By forging friendships with and learning from students who have differing ecclesiastical backgrounds, your own ministerial formation will continue to flourish.
Study support available throughout
While some of our ordinands may have studied at university level before, others are discovering academic study for the first time.
To help you adjust to and make the most of your academic studies and practical ministerial training, our student support team is here to help you.
Access mentoring and coaching to improve study skills, turn to ongoing pastoral and spiritual support, and take part in vocal training so you can lead worship with absolute confidence.
