UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES

Overview

CYM faculty endorse and oversee a number of undergraduate degree programmes for people of all ages and experiences looking to take the next step in working with children and young people in a Christian context.

The degree programmes are suitable for those who have gained A levels, or an equivalent recognised access course like Equip Youth Work or Children’s Ministry, and have some prior experience of ministry and/or professional work with young people or children.  We are also able to consider applications from mature students without formal qualifications and are experienced at supporting individuals with specific learning support needs.

Delivered in Belfast and Nottingham, all the programmes share CYM’s core values  while maintaining a distinct flavour and focus of their own.

Content, delivery patterns and professional endorsement vary across teaching centres and degrees. Please follow the links for the individual teaching centres below to find out more about their unique focus and approach.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Staffordshire University in the development of our undergraduate programmes and they are our validating University.
