Diploma

The Diploma in Theology, Ministry and Mission takes two years to complete when studied full time and is accredited by Durham University.

Most Trinity students are over the age of 21; however, if you’re a school leaver who is interested in studying with us then just get in touch with our admissions team who will talk with you about your options. Although most candidates will need to have at least two A levels, or equivalent, greater weight is placed on references, interviews and other evidence of motivation and academic ability. International students need to have an IELTS (International English Language Test Score) of 6.5 and the English language test must have been taken within the last two years.

The Diploma is assessed at Levels 4 and 5 and you’re required to take enough modules to add up to 240 credits (120 credits in each year of study). Take a look at our sample module list for an idea of the topics with which you may engage.

This programme is available both to our gathered learning community in Bristol (who meet throughout the week for classes) and to our dispersed learners (who come to college in block weeks for classes).

Giving a night a week to learn more about God

Having tried my hardest to give up RE GCSE at school I never would have predicted I’d end up studying theology, ministry and mission at university level, but God had other plans.

Telling the stories of God’s faithfulness

Our family would not be at Trinity College Bristol today, where Justin has been teaching Christian doctrine for eight years and I’ve helped with the college’s communications work for five, apart from the faithfulness of God. As I’ve watched the world shift under all our feet, it helps me to remember that. In Joshua 4, […]
