Entry requirements

The normal entry requirement for postgraduate courses at Cambridge Theological Federation (CTF) is a first- or good second-class honours degree in a relevant subject. Examples would include Ethics, Philosophy, Theology, or other related subjects.

The CTF will also consider graduates in other disciplines who may also be admitted to the programme on a case-by-case basis. The CTF will also take seriously, on a case-by-case basis, applications from candidates without an appropriate undergraduate degree who can demonstrate significant relevant experience, such as in professional or ministerial roles, especially for candidates who have not had the opportunity to engage in formal higher education before.

Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed by the House they have applied to. The CTF reserves the right not to admit applicants who do not satisfactorily demonstrate their motivation or ability to fit into the learning community of the chosen Federation House. Applicants can only be admitted if the interview confirms their teachability, and if there is clear indication that they are able to establish and maintain meaningful learning relationships with their tutors and fellow students.
