As students come from diverse backgrounds we offer a wide range of flexible academic programmes, either through Durham University Common Awards or the University of Oxford. We discuss the most appropriate course for you when you visit but here is a guide:

Under 30 years Oxford or Durham University BA
Over 30 years Durham University Common Awards undergraduate programme
Have a theology degree Oxford or Durham University graduate degree

Some students will not have done any formal study in higher education, or will need to refresh their study skills. Our teaching takes this into account. Each course is directed by a member of the academic teaching staff who provides guidance and support. Our university links mean that we are equipped to offer additional help to those with special educational needs, such as dyslexia. 

Other students will choose to study for a University of Oxford degree and those matriculated on Oxford courses become members of the University with access to its resources. The highest grade for the Oxford BA in Theology and Religion in 2018 was achieved by a Cuddesdon ordinand, Andrew Bennison.

Whichever course you take, you will be encouraged to integrate your academic study of theology with personal experience, life in community and commitment to the wider church and world. Here we seek to offer a rich and rounded training that will both support you in your formation while at College and prepare you for future ministry in public

The academic resources, teaching and library at Cuddesdon are brilliant and the links with Oxford a real strength.
