Here we see some happy students at HTC.
If you are looking to study the Christian faith in a friendly worshipping community you’ve come to the right place. We are much more than a college in that we believe that theological study reaps the best results when students live a life of faith.
As you study, we will encourage you to worship with us so that, not only will you be able to put your studies into a practical context, but your life will be enriched and, as you share your own experiences of God, you will feel the wonderful benefits of being in His family.
We are a non-denominational theological college in the evangelical and reformed tradition but we welcome all beliefs and theologies. We appreciate that people coming with a diverse range of perspectives adds real value to everyone’s learning experience. In fact, during your course, you will read a wide range of theology across all the main traditions.
Why not enrol on the Access Course in Christian Theology?
The Access Course has two main functions: 1) as an entry course before embarking on the BA programme, and 2) as a stand-alone course for anyone who wants to study the Christian faith but not at degree-level. Many have studied Access just for their own interest, without the intention of progressing to further theological studies.
For anyone who wants to study the Christian faith. Suitable for those new to the faith and those who are long-established in the faith.
No formal qualifications are required for entrance onto the course. Particularly suitable for those wishing to study the Christian faith but who do not have the necessary qualifications for entry to HTC’s BA Theological Studies degree. Other institutions may also recognise this course as an appropriate entry qualification to degree level courses in theology or other disciplines.
Age is no barrier – previous Access students have included school-leavers, pensioners, and all ages in between.
Great for school-leavers who wish to take a year out before going to university.
Work at your own pace. Complete the whole course successfully within two years to gain the ‘Certificate of Access in Christian Theology’ (you will then be eligible to apply for our BA in Theological Studies degree, if you wish) or if you take more than two years you will gain the ‘Certificate of Completion’.
Available in full-time and distance learning modes.
Six modules, each comprising 15 units. Each unit takes about 4 hours to complete.
You don’t have to study all the modules. If you want, you can choose individual module(s) without committing to studying the whole Access Course.
For those studying by distance learning, a pack of materials clearly details how to proceed through the course. The reading for each unit is carefully set out, and students will be guided through a set of activities and instructed when to return written work to their tutor. Personal tutorial support is available to all students, and there is the opportunity to meet with other students at regular Conference Days.
