Study theology online

Are you settled in your church or organisation and want to continue serving there whilst studying?

Or does studying towards a degree feel like a distant reality due to your current life commitments?

Our flexible learning is a fantastic option for you.

Flexible learning is designed to allow you to study from wherever you are in the country, whilst immersing yourself in your chosen context. This might be your paid employment, where you volunteer, or the church to which you belong. It might be a charity or school – get in touch to find out if your context would qualify.

Alongside being immersed in your placement throughout the year, you’ll also have access to regular group sessions as well as a personal tutor for dedicated one-to-one support.

In addition to the online learning, there will be 3 short residentials at Moorlands College Campus, where you will be able to meet with fellow students and staff in face-to-face settings, and make the most of our beautiful location.


Both of our udergraduate programmes are available to study via flexible learning:

– BA (Hons) Applied Theology

– BA (Hons) Applied Theology Youth and Community Work (with JNC)


Detailed information can be found on those pages but if you want to talk to someone about what this option could like like for you, please register your interest here and a member of staff will be in touch.

“Moorlands College enabled me to study whilst actively serving within my local church. It equipped me to lead in new and innovative ways which will help me immeasurably in the future.  Applying my theological studies has helped me to not only learn more about God, but also grow closer to Him
