Information for Applicants
The BTh course, also known as Theology for Life, helps you connect faith to everyday life through academic study. It is an accredited course in Theology, delivered by St Padarn’s Institute for the Church in Wales and validated by the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David. By following the course, and writing the assignments, you can gain a certificate in two years, diploma in four years or a degree in six years in Theology.
Each module starts with an introductory online session run by a subject specialist on Zoom. Then you will meet in a group either locally or online for eight sessions, to discuss learning materials which the subject specialist will have prepared for you. You will access all this material online. During the term you will also meet in a larger group with others in your area for a midterm seminar. At the end of the module, you will write an assignment. For the final two years (level 6) the course is run on a weekday evening on Zoom.
