AWARD IN CATHOLIC THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION
What are the entrance requirements?
The admission of a participant will require a meeting with members of the Academic Committee to assess academic competence and appropriate attitudes and to clarify financial arrangements regarding fees. The candidate will also be given information about the type of support that will be offered throughout the programme. The ability to work at Scottish Higher level is required. Students will also be asked to supply the names of two referees. Normally one of these will be the Parish Priest, whose nomination is essential to acceptance for Catechist formation, given that it is directed towards ministering in parish life.
Will I be able to fit this into my busy schedule?
This two-year course consists of four modules per year, plus a catechetical component for those undertaking catechist formation.
All modules consist of 75 hours "notional student effort". These are made up of:
2.5 hrs per week for 7 weeks
= 17.5 hrs
5 hrs per week for 6 weeks
= 30 hrs
= 06 hrs
= 21.5 hrs
= 75 hrs
*This is one evening per week
Certificate total = 600 hours
As well as the above, the catechetical component consists of two workshop Saturdays, 6 evenings per year (normally September and June) and an evening within each module exploring practical and catechetical applications of the theological material being explored.
When does the next course begin?
The course normally begins in September. If you would like to register an interest please contact the RE Department.
