Non-residential theological study
St Augustine’s is a non-residential college of theology. This means that students are not required to live on campus or in student accomodation as they might otherwise be in a more traditional university set-up.
Instead, you and your fellow students will travel to your chosen campus to attend classes (or attend remotely via online classes). This means that as long as you live within what you judge to be a reasonable proximity to either our London or Kent campuses, you can enrol with us.
Worship together as part of your studies
As part of your student experience and ongoing formation, we invite you to join us in worship and prayer if and when it feels right for you.
Classes typically begin and/or end with a prayer, which is an opportunity to give thanks for wisdom and insight that draws us closer to God. If you’re attending classes at Malley Abbey, there is also an afternoon service held after classes finish which you are welcome to attend.
Attend classes on campus or remotely
St Augustine’s campuses are based in the South East of England. As a student, you’ll choose whether to attend classes at either campus (or in some cases, both).
- The West Malling campus, where you’ll attend Friday classes from 10am to 4pm in the tranquil and sun-soaked Malling Abbey.
- The Southwark campus, where you’ll attend convenient evening classes at Trinity House, our modern campus building in the heart of central London.
Many of our courses allow you to learn remotely, via online classes. While the majority of courses require an element of in-person learning, some are taught exclusively online; find out which by exploring our course page.
