.. I received a grounding in how to think theologically and serve pastorally

Study at IBCStudy at IBC

The college has a warm family atmosphere, and one advantage of our relatively small size (up to 50 full-time students) is that each student is guaranteed individual attention and pastoral care. IBC is committed to the absolute authority of Scripture and to the outworking of all matters of faith and practice within a purely evangelical framework.


The demands on those involved in Christian ministry have never been greater. Students in training require a programme that develops a deeper knowledge and understanding of God and His Word. In addition they need to learn the practical skills essential to sustain a long-term ministry in whatever setting they are called to. Our major undergraduate (UG) route is the 'Preparation for Ministry' course which aims to give students the key building blocks to enable them to be better equipped to minister.


As well as offering a comprehensive programme of undergraduate courses, students may also continue their theological studies at postgraduate level at the College.

The range of study options available caters for those wishing to continue their professional development in a ministry role. The MA has taught and research elements enabling the practitioner to develop in the areas of ministry in which he or she serves. MTh, MPhil and PhD offer a route for those wishing to do further research into a specialist area or who are perhaps considering teaching and lecturing.

 It may be that you do not wish to follow a course which leads to a university qualification, in which case maybe one of our other courses would be more suited to your needs and circumstances. All of these courses can, if you so choose, lead to Christian Education qualifications.
