Shape of the week

It normally takes three years to complete a part-time ordination programme, earning 80 credits a year.

Each year you will be based in College for four residential block weeks which are spaced throughout the year. For the rest of the year you will take part in weekly virtual tutor groups.  You will also have online teaching on some Wednesday afternoons.

Block weeks begin late on Monday morning and finish at lunchtime on Friday – you will stay in our on-site accommodation, where you will have your own room. The block weeks allow you to focus on teaching and in-person community whilst you are here.

You can talk more with our admissions office to get a better picture of what this might be like in your own situation on a practical level. Alternatively, if you are seeking to consider flexible ordination training options, you can also consider our full-time dispersed learning track.
