Distance Education

Distance Study
Some units (diploma level and language units) are available by distance mode (see below). Study by distance mode will involve a set of notes for each unit supplied by the PTC, the regular submission of assignments and the opportunity to discuss issues by phone or email with a member of staff.

Candidates and intending candidates for the Presbyterian ministry enrolled for distance units only should note that attendance at the PTC is expected for four days only in the course of any year. The following units are available for study by distance mode.

The only award which may be entirely undertaken by distance study through the PTC at this stage is the Certificate in Bible and Ministry. The 200 level units may be taken towards the Diploma of Theology/Ministry and the Advanced Diploma of Ministry. LA003A&B may be taken within any award up to BTh.
