Independent Students

We welcome inquiries from prospective independent students. Recent examples of independent students include:

  • Lay people wishing to deepen and enrich their faith by studying theology as part of a worshipping community.
  • Those preparing for Christian ministry in other parts of the Anglican Communion and Lutheran churches in Europe.

We do not offer an M.Div. degree, since the M.Div. is not a standard British qualification. However, the range and standards of our programmes are broadly equivalent to those of a North American M.Div. We are glad to work with overseas candidates (and their sponsoring churches) to put together a programme that will satisfy their needs for training, subject to visa and immigration requirements.


A number of courses are available to independent students. For further information, please contact the admissions office
