The Diploma in Christian Studies and Diploma in Biblical Studies run in alternating years and are designed to dovetail together perfectly, providing in-depth, classroom-based learning. Students who complete both diplomas will cover 90 per cent of all the books of the Bible; develop a range of ministry skills; and study topics in Christian history and worldview, Christian living, and biblical interpretation.

Students seeking only one year of study will find great value in doing just one of these diplomas. The majority of our students choose to complete both in successive years.

Available each year to graduates of other
SPBC diplomas (or equivalent).

The Diploma in Christian Leadership provides an internship-based programme, suitable for graduates of both previous diplomas (or equivalent). This has much fewer classroom hours, so students will be highly self-directed as they learn to lead ministry projects and study relevant topics that meet the needs of Christian communities.

Our flexible study options focus on the individual modules and courses that make up our diplomas.
