About this course

The Certificate is aimed at those who have little or no experience in cross-cultural mission but who are hoping to serve effectively wherever they live and work. It is designed to teach foundational missionary knowledge, methodology and practical skills whilst at the same time helps to develop the interpersonal, spiritual and academic skills of the student throughout the year. This course will therefore enable you to prepare for an effective cross-cultural mission experience.

Entry Requirements

The Certificate is an open access programme, validated by the Open University. The recommended minimum age of entry is 21 years. However the College will consider applicants who are 19 years old provided they meet the admissions criteria. Normally you should have a minimum of two ‘A’ level equivalents or relevant vocational experience.

For those for whom English is not a first language (according to UKVI criteria), proof of English skills will also be required. This must be an academic IELTS test with a score 5.5 at a UKVI approved SELTS Centre (with a minimum 5.5 for listening/reading and 5.0 for writing/speaking.) For students who do not require a visa we will also consider a score of 162 or above in the Cambridge Advanced Exam, or a score of 46 or above in the TOEFL (IBT computer-based) English test.
