Ridley Hall offers a 'top-up' year for curates and incumbents who studied to diploma level with Common Awards. The 'top-up' year provides these students with the opportunity to gain a BA (honours) in Theology, Ministry and Mission by completing a further year of study at level 6.

Study at level 6 provides students with the opportunity to further develop their critical and reflective skills, as well as engage in independent study and research in a topic of their choosing.
