Course Details

MTh For the MTh, the programme content is determined by the supervisor (appointed by the Institute) in consultation with the student and is approved by the Institute of Theology.

Graduate Diploma The Graduate Diploma programme aims to provide a conversion course for students who are graduates in a discipline other than Theology which may enable them, if they perform sufficiently well, to proceed to a taught postgraduate degree programme in Theology. In addition, the Diploma is a free-standing qualification which will allow applicants the opportunity to study Theology out of interest or personal choice.
