Studying at Ridley Hall
Teaching at Ridley Hall takes place over six separate teaching weeks. You will study one module over each teaching week. Assignments are due approximately 6-8 weeks after the teaching week. Assignments are a mixture of essays, theological reflections, resources for ministry and portfolios. No piece of work will be longer than 2500 words or equivalent.
You will 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, which is followed by half-an-hour set aside for reading. The first lectures and seminars will take place between 9:30am and 12:30pm before you stop for lunch. The afternoon may be further lectures, communal time, reflecting in groups focused around your specialism, 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.
The teaching weeks in September, January, April and May, typically run from Monday to Friday.
The teaching weeks in October and February, typically run from Monday to Wednesday (first years) and Wednesday to Friday (second years).
