Mature and Non-traditional entry
NTC welcomes applications from mature and non-traditional students. An increasing number of students come to theological study as part of a career change, or following early retirement: many of these students have a wealth of experience, but may not have traditional entry qualifications.
These students are still eligible for entry through the non-traditional student admission process if they can demonstrate at least three years relevant experience and/or non-traditional qualifications. A pass in English Language at GCSE level or its equivalent is normally required for non-traditional student entry.
The College sometimes invites such applicants to complete an entry examination, as evidence of their ability to cope with the demands of the course. This would normally be completed at the College, often as part of an entry interview process.
