The Common Awards are provided by the Cambridge Theological Federation and a number of other training institutions in partnership with the University of Durham and the Church of England. The Federation is one of the largest providers of these awards and from 2015 will offer eight different awards under the Common Awards umbrella.
While the awards have been designed to provide training and formation for ordinands and accredited ministers, they are also suitable for people who wish to deepen their learning and understanding of Christian discipleship. We welcome inquiries from prospective ordinands and independent students who would like to study with us.
The Graduate Awards are designed to build on and supplement existing theological study. They may be used in combination with a Cambridge Award like Tripos or as a preparation for postgraduate study (e.g. the MA), in order to fulfil the formational criteria required by the Church of England.
