Distance Learning Options
We appreciate that there may be some people who are unable to attend an on-campus programme. The GradDip, with the exception of a few modules, are also available as Distance Learning (DL) options. Those studying by DL will be assigned a Personal Tutor, to give advice and ongoing help and support through the programme. They will also have specific Module Tutors, guiding them through the course material and the assignments. DL students are welcome to visit the campus and are free to attend any relevant lectures.

Please contact our Distance Learning Department for more details.
For applicants under 21, the primary requirement of acceptance to Mattersey Hall is evidence of the candidate’s ability to complete the programme – a part of which is expected 2 A-levels or equivalent. Mature applicants (21+), who do not have formal qualifications, may still be admitted, though in that case it is usual to ask applicants to submit an essay on a Biblical subject.
Graduate Diploma in Theological Studies (GradDip)
The GradDip is designed for students who have already completed a recognised degree in a non-theological discipline, and who want to do further serious study in the area of Biblical Studies, Theology and Christian Leadership, possibly as preparation for a Masters programme, either at Mattersey Hall or at other institutions.
This programme may also be studied part-time and/or by Distance Learning. It is open to anyone with a recognised Bachelors degree. Unfortunately, there is no student finance available for the GradDip.

OFFICE FOR STUDENTS TRANSPARENCY REPORT
The information published on these pages shows: The number of applications for admission on to higher education courses that we have received. The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications. The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us. The number of students who registered and went on to complete their course with us. The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us. It also shows these numbers by reference to: The gender of the individuals to which they relate. Their ethnicity. Their socioeconomic background. It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses, and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances. With regard to information that is split by the three characteristics of gender, ethnicity and socioeconomic background you will see that some figures may be highlighted. This is because those differences between groups of students with particular characteristics are notable.
