Course Information

  • The normal delivery pattern is three teaching weeks in the first year of study (Autumn, Early Spring, Early Summer), and two teaching weeks in the second year (Autumn, Early Spring).
  •  All teaching is delivered by our experienced faculty or expert practitioners in your field of study. Plus you are learning alongside people that are also passionate about what you do!
  • Students will be required to complete an online Study Skills Unit, but all other units at Levels 4 (Certificate) and 5 (Diploma) are delivered on site at Cliff College. We work hard to build a supportive community for part-time distance learners. Our students often comment on the benefits of the retreat-like atmosphere of the teaching weeks that include worship, Bible teaching and devotions, as well as the opportunity to laugh and have fun.
  • Students are required to complete 120 credits at Level 4 to achieve a Certificate in Higher Education, a further 120 credits at Level 5 to achieve a Diploma in Higher Education, and another 120 credits at Level 6 to achieve a BA (Hons) in Mission and Ministry.
  • Course fees (£2,995 p.a. part time, £5,990 p.a. full time) include tuition, assessment and validation by The University of Manchester. Food and accommodation during teaching weeks is charged separately.
  • Our courses are designed to equip and enable reflective practitioners, and therefore we understand the needs of people that are great at what they do, and want to know more, but might lack confidence academically. We also love to stretch the high flyers and encourage their research into new insights in the field. Each student has the support of a personal tutor, and guidance is given during the teaching week on how to approach the assignments.
  • It is possible to take an unvalidated route through the course by attending all the teaching weeks and submitting one or two pieces of work. This will entitle you to an internal Cliff College certificate.
