Graduate Diploma

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

This programme is most suitable for someone who has completed either a diploma or foundation degree in theology and is looking to progress towards the MA. We only offer the Graduate Diploma to students who have completed 240 credits of theology elsewhere. 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 GradDip is assessed at Levels 5 and 6 and you’re required to take enough modules to add up to 120 credits. Take a look at our sample module list for an idea of the topics with which you may engage.
