Studying online at Ridley London

Study at Ridley London is provided online to support our core aim of providing accessible, in-depth and comprehensive training in Theology, Ministry and Mission for all God’s people.

Who this course is aimed at

Ridley London has a specific focus on training volunteers, apprentices and others working with children and young people in urban church and faith-based settings.

Applied in its approach and design, training with Ridley London will enable you to consolidate your existing experiences and to grow as a mature, wise and faithful disciple of Christ.

The study format

The training takes place via a mixture of online asynchronous tasks (set tasks undertaken during the week as best fits your existing commitments) and online zoom classrooms.

The zoom classroom sessions are delivered between 6pm and 7.45pm on a Monday evening during term time. The course is suitable for people with a range of academic experience.

Alongside the online training you will have the opportunity to meet with an experienced tutor once a month, who will support you to get the most out of your training.

The qualification

The training is based around the Cert HE in Theology, Ministry and Mission validated by Durham University.

Successful completion of the Cert HE provides the opportunity to progress onto the BA in Theology, Ministry and Mission taught at our Cambridge campus.

The Taster Module

For those unsure whether this level of commitment is for them, or those without the necessary entry grades, we offer a Taster Module to help you discern next steps and as an access route onto the course.

Fees

For information about current fees for courses at Ridley London, see our fees and funding page.

More about the Taster Module

More about the Taster Module

The Taster Module provides an opportunity for you to experience study online and to engage with the course without having to commit to a whole year.

Please speak to us about current opportunities for the coming academic year.

A taster module can typically be undertaken prior to study on the Cert HE or, in the first term of the Cert HE itself.

Please note: if you want to take the taster module to meet entrance requirements for the Cert HE, it will need to be taken for-credit.

More about the Cert HE

More about the Cert HE

Whether you are a volunteer in full-time employment, a full-time parent, or starting out in full-time ministry, the Cert HE will provide the theological and ministerial foundation you need to grow in your calling.

Students undertaking the Cert HE typically work with children and young people in some capacity and undertake study in children's and family ministry, youth ministry, pastoral ministry, discipleship (reflective practice), old testament, new testament and Christian history and doctrine.

For those who aren’t don’t wish to focus on youth, children's and family ministry, there is an option to undertake an independent learning project in an area of your choice.

Find out more about studying with Ridley London at our next online open evening.
