Trinity offers new ‘dispersed learning’ track

Dispersed learners can complete the Diploma in Theology, Ministry and Mission in two years or the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Theology, Ministry and Mission in three years without relocating to Bristol for residential training. Both programmes are accredited by Durham University.

Dispersed learning cohorts attend college for six block weeks during the academic year. Between block weeks, the dispersed learning students log in to a weekly virtual tutor group and seminar, which offers additional support for learning in context and formation.

Building on Trinity’s expertise in contextual training, this programme emphasizes close integration between the student’s context and the college, with regular liaision between the college tutor and the student’s church supervisor. The balance of contextual engagement and study is designed to facilitate a high quality, rigorous academic programme integrated with contextual engagement.
