Individual programmes and their duration are determined by previous educational qualifications and experience, but ministerial training will usually have three components:
- Academic theological course
within the Partnership or at an appropriate University
- Unitarian and practical theology courses
provided by the College
- Placement experience
arranged and supervised by the college
Students who have good experience of the movement and a first degree usually complete ministerial training in two years; those without a degree often take three years.
College operates a two-semester year.
