Studying at Ridley London

Training at Ridley London will be undertaken online for the academic year 2020/21. While this is a response to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 it also supports the fulfilment of our core aim to provide accessible, in-depth and comprehensive discipleship training for all.

Applied in its approach and design, the training will provide ‘scaffolding’ to support your growth as a mature, wise and faithful disciple of Christ.

The training will take place via a mixture of online asynchronous tasks (tasks set and undertaken in your own time) and online synchronous zoom classrooms (coming together as a class). Utilising a flip-classroom approach the course is suitable for people with a range of academic experience.

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.

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 discern next steps and as an access route onto the course.

More about the Taster Module

The Taster Module provides an opportunity for you to experience study via a blended learning approach and to engage with our courses without having to commit to a whole year.

The taster module can be ‘audited’ for just over 100 or taken for credit. If audited the taster module does not count towards the Cert HE should you choose to progress. However, should you take the taster module for-credit, then it will count towards the 120 credits of the Cert HE should you choose to progress, with the for-credit fee reflecting the relevant percentage of the Cert HE cost in accordance with the module chosen.

The taster module can be undertaken a year prior to further study on the Cert HE or, in the first term of the Cert HE itself.

More about the Cert HE

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

Students undertaking the Cert HE typically study children's and family ministry, youth ministry, pastoral ministry, old testament, new testament and doctrine; and either an access module in theology and reflective practice (with study skills) or an independent learning project in a topic of their choice, such as ministry in the financial sector.

For those who don’t wish to undertake modules in youth ministry and children's and family ministry, there is an option to undertake the access module and the independent learning project.
