While you study with us, you will be well supported by the programme team with a wide variety of additional one-to-one support.
Every student is assigned a personal tutor who will:
Guide you through the matriculation process and the course schedule
Help you become a confident, active member of the online learning community
Help you with any concerns or problems that might affect your studies
Students access materials, discussion forums and a range of learning tools via the Virtual Learning Environment. Our platform is designed to be easy to use and we incorporate familiarisation training into the programme induction. Tech support will be via BibleMesh.
You will also be able to take advantage of digital library access to the e-books in Union’s Gamble Library.
In consultation with an appointed supervisor, students prepare a dissertation of 15,000 words on a research topic in New Testament or on any of its cross-disciplinary interfaces. Within set parameters for its timing, nature, and degree, formative feedback will be given by the supervisor on elements of the developing project, covering both the research topic and the dissertation itself.
