Building on the foundations established at Level 4 (CertHE level), the second year of the DipHE has an emphasis on the integration of biblical studies, doctrine, history, and practical ministry. In addition to the careful and sequential ordering of compulsory modules, flexibility with elective modules enables students to prepare themselves for a variety of ministries, including pastoral leadership, cross-cultural ministry, youth and children’s ministry and specialisation in a particular theological discipline. The majority of content in the DipHE year is at Level 5; however, students also have the opportunity to study some optional content at Level 6 (BA (Hons) Level) if desired. Like the CertHE, the DipHE offers a self-contained programme in its own right, as well as acting as a stepping stone towards BA-level study, and is especially popular with those who wish to undertake theological study before entering into the pastorate/ministry.
