Please note, the closing date for applications onto the Graduate Diploma in Theological Studies is Friday 7th August 2020.
If you are applying for the Graduate Diploma, please complete and return the main form (together with the application fee and a passport-sized photo) to the Admissions Office at Mattersey Hall, or use the online application. After your named referees have been contacted, we will arrange for you to visit the College for an informal interview as soon as possible where more details will be given on the course and funding. A major part of the application process is the completion of both a ‘Self-Declaration’ and an ‘On-line’ DBS check. This is to ascertain the suitability of our on-site Residential and Day Students to work with children and vulnerable adults in the various ministry and missions contexts that we offer. Distance Learning students will also be required to complete a ‘Self-Declaration’. Any offer made to a candidate will be conditional upon a satisfactory DBS check.
