Graduate Diploma in Theology & Religious Studies
The Graduate Diploma provides a route towards postgraduate study in Theology and Religious Studies for those with a previous degree in another subject.
The programme can also be pursued as an end in itself, for those with a previous non-theology degree who wish to acquire a competence in Theology and Religious Studies.

A university degree is required - normally a 2.1 or equivalent (eg a North American GPA of 3.5+).
Applicants must also demonstrate an ability to study at university level, and be judged capable of making a quick and successful transition to advanced study in Theology and Religious Studies.
The specific courses taken in the graduate diploma will be selected in light of the individual student's declared focus (eg the intended focus for postgraduate study).
For more detailed information on the graduate diploma, consult the Programme Specification.
Fees for Home/EU and for overseas students are set by the University.
