Independent Ministry Training

Ripon College Cuddesdon welcomes independent students on all its pathways. In addition to the established courses at Gloucester and Ludlow, there is also wide range of programmes available at Cuddesdon. These range from doctoral studies at the University of Oxford or the University of Durham through to the Oxford University Master of Theology or the Common Awards MA for those in ministry and those wishing to expand their understanding of theology.

Independent students who are active in any form of Christian ministry may also apply to participate in our ordination courses in Cuddesdon and in Portsmouth and can be admitted for Oxford or Common Awards qualifications, depending on their previous background.

Those interested in a beginner’s course in theology may apply to study on the Cuddesdon School of Theology and Ministry and may register for a Common Awards Foundation Award.
