Application process

Before you start your online application please familiarise yourself with the application process and the information you require in order to apply.

There are a few steps involved including paying the non-refundable application fee of £45 and providing 2 references: one pastoral reference (if you apply for a Bible course) or one Professional reference (if you apply for a Counselling course) and one character reference. The character reference can be a friend (not relative) who has known you for at least 2 years. You can download the references, send them to your referees to fill them in and then have them ready to upload when you start the application process.

Downloadable reference forms here:

Bible College Year 2 »

Here is a summary of the steps required to submit your application:

Step 1: Download the relevant reference and send it to your referee to fill it. Ask your referee for email and contact number so you have them available when you fill in the application form online. Once you received the references back you can start the online application.

Step 2: Fill in the relevant course online application form

Step 3: Upload the two references required.
