Trinity welcomes part-time students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as those who come to study one-off units or to attend our study days
Evening study and Certificate in Theology
We have a part-time programme on Tuesday evenings once a week and on four Saturdays per year. Each teaching unit takes place over eight weeks, with breaks for school half-terms, Christmas and Easter.
You can use this programme to study for
the two-year Part-time Certificate in Theology validated by the University of Bristol,
or for the Trinity College Foundation Certificate in Christian Studies.
If you prefer, you can simply audit a course (attend classes but not do any written work).
Part-time ordination training
Our evening programme has now been accepted by Ministry Division of the Church of England for ordinands in training, both for Ordained Local MInistry and for regular Incumbent ministry.
If you would like to study at home, but supported by a local small group and a tutor, please look at the Open Learning at Trinity page.
Part-time postgraduate study
There are numerous opportunities to follow postgraduate study on a part-time basis. This includes the taught MA programme, which can be completed part time in three years, or research degrees.
