Access to Theology

Access to Theology is a 48-hour course of studies designed to offer students an overview of the component parts of a programme in theological education.

It will be suitable for students looking for a broad but rigorous introduction to theological study, as well as for those who wish to pursue further studies in theology but lack entrance qualifications.  The theological and biblical studies lectures also form key components of other present and forthcoming courses at ETS (e.g., Eldership, Diaconate, Youth Worker course)
