Honours degree in a relevant subject
Applicants to the MA normally have an honours degree in a relevant subject. However, NTC offers a pre-MA course to help develop foundational knowledge in biblical studies, practical theology, and theology to ensure you thrive in the MA in Theology programme. You can find more information at this link.
Those who do not have the formal qualifications necessary to gain entry directly on to the MA courses are able to apply to the Postgraduate certificate or diploma. Students who wish to progress on to complete the MA may do so, provided they have performed at the required level.
Proficiency in English
All teaching at the College is conducted in English, but we welcome International Students from around the world. Applicants whose first language is not English need to a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 or its equivalent.
