A part-time course taken over four years aimed at those already in ministry. The MTh degree, which is a higher degree of the University of Oxford, and is normally only open to those who have gained a good first degree and consists of two parts.

For Part One, taught in the first two years, students are required to engage in theological reflection with others in organised seminars, and will also be given individual guidance through tutorials and essay supervision. Each unit is externally examined by an extended essay of up to 7,000 words. All students must take two compulsory units in applied theology, and two options. Part Two is a dissertation of 15,000-20,000 words on an aspect of applied theology written during the second two years.
