The BA (Hons) in Theology can also be studied by Distance Learning (part-time only) and it can either be started in January or September.

The Distance Learning programme is a great option for those who are unable to attend the College campus due to location, work commitments, and/or personal circumstances. It is flexible because each student can adapt learning to fit their personal schedules. Distance Learning can save students time over the course of the day as they are able to chose when to access recorded content, enabling them to practice good time-management skills; a skill highly valued by employers. A university degree taken by Distance Learning will also provide potential employers with evidence of critical technical skills required in many modern work environments.
