Standard Entry Requirements
The standard entry requirements are 2 A-Levels, or equivalent (grade E or above).

Non-standard Entry
Lindisfarne is committed to taking non-traditional applicants onto its programmes and encourages applications from anyone who considers this to be the right course for them.  Applicants who do not meet the standard entry requirements (specified above) should have GCSEs (or equivalent) in English and Maths (grade C or above).  In addition they will be asked to write a short (500 word) book review prior to a place being offered.  This will enable the Lindisfarne staff to assess whether prospective students are seeking to engage with theological study at the right level.

Additional Expectations for Admission to the Programme
The BA in Theology, Ministry and Mission is made available through the financial generosity of the Church of England both nationally and regionally.  This is the reason why we are able to offer this programme to independent students at a significantly subsidised rate.

Lindisfarne’s programmes in Theology, Ministry and Mission are designed to foster students’ Christian discipleship and to prepare people for ministry in the Church of England. Our programmes are offered within the context of a learning and praying community. We therefore welcome applicants from Christian Churches and communities in the region who will feel at home in such an educational environment.

Non-ministerial applicants will engage in modules alongside candidates for ministry, including some placement work.  Places will be offered to those applicants whom Lindisfarne regards as having the ability to relate to and work appropriately with a wide range of people, and whom it considers suitable to represent it in the wider sphere of placement contexts.  Those accepted will also be in good standing with a local church – whether Anglican or of another tradition recognised by the World Council of Churches.

References in support of non-ministerial applicants will be taken up prior to admission to the programme, and students will be required to undertake a self-funded assessment with the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) prior to commencing the programme.

We therefore welcome applicants from Christian Churches and communities in the region who will feel at home in such an educational environment.

Non-ministerial applicants will engage in modules alongside candidates continuing ministerial education, including the possibility of some placement work.  Places will be offered to those applicants whom Lindisfarne regards as having the ability to relate to and work appropriately with a wide range of people, and whom it considers suitable to represent it in the wider sphere of placement contexts.  Those accepted will also be in good standing with a local church – whether Anglican or of another tradition recognised by the World Council of Churches.

References in support of non-ministerial applicants will be taken up prior to admission to the programme, and students will be required to undertake a self-funded assessment with the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) prior to commencing the programme.
