Specialise in youth, children’s & family or sports ministry

Our degree programme is flexible, allowing you to specialise in your area of ministry. You may already be working or volunteering with young people or children, or be involved in some form of sports ministry. Ridley Hall’s tailored course is designed for those who want to take the next step in their calling.

Study through teaching weeks in Cambridge

Study takes place over six separate teaching weeks spread out manageably through the year from September to June. In each teaching week you study one module, with the assignment due approximately 6 to 8 weeks afterwards.

Practical experience through placements

Students are placed within an existing ministerial team in a church or Christian charity for the duration of their studies. Placement experience is an essential part of a student's learning. It’s here that students develop their ministerial skills through day-to-day engagement alongside experienced practitioners.
