Studying at Ridley Hall
Teaching at Ridley Hall takes place over six separate teaching weeks. In each teaching week you study one module with the assignment due approximately 6-8 weeks after the teaching week. Assignments are a mixture of essays, theological reflections, resources for ministry and portfolios. Teaching involves a mix of lectures, seminars, group work, and tutorials. Teaching is delivered by a mix of Ridley Hall tutor staff and highly experienced practitioners.
You study six modules a year (full-time) and three modules a year (part time).
The teaching weeks are timetabled in September, October, January, February, April and June. The timetable and module choices for 18/19 can be downloaded here.
A typical day will start at 8:30am for worship, followed by half-an-hour set aside for reading. The first teaching session will take place between 9:30am and 12:30pm before you stop for lunch. The afternoon may consist of further lectures, seminars, or group work, or provide space for communal time, reflecting in ministry groups, or listening to a guest speaker. Evenings are generally free for you to study or socialise as you choose, with the exception of Thursday where we join together for communion at 5:30pm.
