Placement-based in the South West

Our South West Regional Centre, supported by South West Youth Ministries (SWYM), delivers the placement-based BA (Hons) Applied Theology programme, enabling you to be on placement whilst studying. You’ll be taught via study blocks throughout the academic year, allowing you to fully engage in activities at a local South West placement—typically located between Cornwall and the Bristol area.

You can discover more about our link with SWYM via their website.

Study blocks

Training is delivered in nine one-week study blocks per year. Six four-day study blocks are held at Lee Abbey in North Devon, and a further three five-day study blocks at the Christchurch Campus.
