When and where will you study?

When and where will you study?

There are three ways you can take modules:

  1. Weekly half-day sessions over eight weeks in Cambridge
    In the Michaelmas (autumn) and Lent (spring) terms, MA teaching takes place over eight weeks in the Cambridge Theological Federation, of which Ridley is a member. The modules are usually taught on one morning or afternoon a week through the term, known as 'Cambridge Centre' teaching.
  2. Supervised modules
    It is possible to take an Independent Learning module in an area not covered by other teaching. This will involve mainly independent study and supervision by an experienced lecturer in that area.
  3. One-week intensives in Cambridge
    It is usually possible to take at least one module (20 credits) via intensive teaching over 5 days.
