Shape of the week

It normally takes three years to complete a part-time ordination programme.

First year: You will meet late afternoon on Tuesdays in your pastoral group, before attending evening lectures. You will also complete two block weeks at college over the course of the year.

Second year: Teaching continues on Tuesday evenings with a few modules taught on Tuesdays during the day. You will again complete two block weeks at college during the year.

Third year: All teaching takes place on Tuesdays during the day, with two block weeks during the year.

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