Spurgeon’s College is the largest Baptist College in Britain. It is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) for Independent Further and Higher Education. The BAC inspectors commented in their report that Spurgeon's College is 'an excellent institution which provides top-rate academic and professional theological education'.
For many years the College has provided resources for students who through distance and circumstances cannot attend the College to take advantage of the residential courses it offers. Spurgeon's Online builds on that long experience and offers students an integrated programme that mirrors our internal academic awards. Students can now study with Spurgeon’s College from the comfort and convenience of their own home - or from wherever they choose!
Studying with Spurgeon's Online means that you are in charge. You take responsibility for what you learn, when you learn and at what speed you learn. You are not tied to academic years and you can start your course whenever it suits you best. Our newly designed Online units bring with them the added advantages of interactive electronic learning.
NB If you aim to complete 60 credits within a 12 month period (approximately requiring 600 study hours), you may qualify for a Local Education Authority (LEA) Grant towards your fees. This applies only to UK residents and is subject to the agreement of your LEA. For details email our Online Learning Administrator, Hannah Bingham at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Preparing Christians for mission and ministry” is the slogan Spurgeon’s College. So our training is vocationally and practically orientated. The Online units are designed to give you a greater understanding of the Bible and the Christian faith and to develop the skills necessary so that you can become even more effective in your personal witness and ministry.
If you are involved in mission or ministry, but are not certain if you have the skills necessary to undertake a period of extended study, Online Learning is a very useful way to gauge your personal capabilities because you can purchase one module at a time. What's more you will not be left to struggle on your own. A unit tutor will help you through each unit. Your progress will be monitored and your assignments will be marked. Your unit tutor and the Spurgeon's Online College team will always be on hand to give you advice and to deal with any queries you may have.
Decide you want to study with us and we will do everything in our power to help you succeed.
