Bachelor of Theology





This is a degree programme validated by the University of Glasgow.

The BTh is designed to provide vocational training for those preparing for the pastoral ministry and other forms of full-time Christian service. It also provides a good foundation for post-graduate theological study and a career in theological education.

If you would like a stimulating, challenging, comprehensive, in-depth education in Biblical Studies, Christian Theology and related disciplines, we can offer you a well-designed curriculum, excellent facilities and first-class tuition. As you progress through your studies, you will rub shoulders with a student body which is remarkably cosmopolitan in composition, making lifelong friendships that will span the globe.

Alongside the BTh, it is possible to undertake additional church ministry training should you wish. The Presbyterian Church Ministry Module is offered to meet contemporary needs within a Presbyterian tradition. We also offer an Independent Church Ministry Module to meet the needs of those who belong to an independent tradition. This module, delivered in association with the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, makes this core course of theological education ideal for other denominations (e.g. Baptist, Pentecostal, Brethren).
