Short Courses

Our short courses offer many ways to study

Why not explore learning with Nazarene Theological College, enhance your personal or ministerial formation, or build on the units you’ve studied by taking an evening class or one of our other flexible study options?

There are numerous ways to study on a short-term basis. Whether it’s a single class that interests you or a number of classes over a longer period, the chance to become part of the academic community here at NTC is yours. The following information will help you decide what to register for:

Audit/Credit Classes (One-off classes)

NTC welcomes students who simply want to take a course unit or two. ‘Audit students’ (not-for-credit) don’t have to go through the formality of application and interviews. There are no examinations or coursework for audit classes so you can join in simply for the pleasure of learning!

Individual evening classes and day classes can also be taken for NTC credit (dependent on completing all the coursework), but without committing to a University of Manchester programme. Up to 6 NTC credit  units earned can then be transferred into the first year of a University of Manchester undergraduate course*. Each class is two hours long and usually run for eleven weeks through the semester or a one-week ‘intensive’.

* Up to 6 NTC credit units at level 4 may be transferred into the first year of a University of Manchester degree within 5 years of being completed.


Week long Courses

The College has three short ‘intensive’ sessions: September, January, and May. This allows full- and part-time students to take a course unit within a one-week intensive period (for undergraduates) or one to two week period (for MA units); classes usually run from 9:15am-3:30pm.

Undergraduate intensive units 2019 and 2020 (Manchester)
