Entry requirements

The standard entry requirement is a good upper second class honours degree or equivalent (for example a GPA of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale) in Theology, Religious Studies or a related discipline. The two principal exceptions to this rule are as follows: graduates of other disciplines who have studied at undergraduate or equivalent level in one or more of the areas in which they hope to work, through their first degrees, through training for the ministry of the churches, and so on; students from overseas universities who have successfully reached a point in their theological studies comparable with completion of a British BA at the standard noted above - for example, on the German model, passing the Zwischenprüfung or Kolloquium and two semesters at the Hauptseminar level.
