Hoping to join us in September 2020?

We want to reassure prospective students that we still very much look forward to welcoming you into our community, and also to make clear the steps you’ll need to follow.

1. If you’ve not already contacted us to let us know of your interest, please email admissions@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk to let us know, and so we can answer any questions you may have.

2. If you are looking to start in September, please submit an online application.

3. Once we receive your application, we will arrange two online interviews for you to discuss your vocational journey and your proposed academic pathway. Interviews will be scheduled on Thursday during term time, either in the morning from 10am or in the afternoon from 2pm. These informal discussions with faculty are an excellent opportunity to ask lots of questions, to get to know us better, and for us to get to know you better. We are conducting interviews through Lifesize, which can be easily accessed on a computer through a Chrome browser or through a smartphone by downloading the app. The member of faculty will email you a link to the meeting, which you can access at your scheduled interview time.

4. After the interviews, we will send you further information which will relate to your individual circumstance (i.e., module lists, information about accommodation, information about assistance and support for families, etc.).

5. As soon as we are able, we will arrange a time for you to come and visit the college in person, if you’ve not done so already, as we understand how important this is as part of the process.

6. When you are ready, either post BAP or after accepting a place, we will arrange for you to have an online discussion with our accommodation team to chat through your housing requirements. It is our understanding through Ministry Division that although in-person BAPs have been cancelled, they hope to sort a system for virtual interviews and assessments.

7. In the meantime, to help you get a feel for joining either our residential community of gathered learners, or our non-residential community of dispersed learners, you can click on the video links below.

Please also know that we are here for any questions or concerns you may have—don’t hesitate to email us at admissions@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk to let us know of any way in which we can be of help to you.

The persevering people of God

What does it mean to be the people of Jesus in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic? A timely message from Tutor in Pastoral and Ministerial Studies Revd Dr Helen Collins, shared in our virtual chapel this morning.  Three weeks ago, I began to think about what passage to choose for what would have been an […]

Poverty in the Early Church and Today

Trinity Tutor in New Testament Prof Steve Walton and Tearfund’s Hannah Swithinbank have co-edited an innovative book of essays that brings the expertise of those working to alleviate poverty together with the expertise of biblical scholars. This allows for a unique conversation about how Christians might think and act about poverty today. Q. Can you […]

The pain and gain of learning Greek

One of the things I was most looking forward to as I approached the beginning of my studies at Trinity was learning Greek. For years I had heard sermons where the preacher had pronounced ‘In the Greek it says…’ and proceeded to unfold seemingly profound mysteries through knowledge of this ancient language. Being the investigative […]
