Apart from our validated online degrees with modules in Jewish-Christian Studies, the school has also developed two new internally-validated online programmes covering a wide range of Jewish-Christian issues, drawing on tutors and resources from across the Jewish-Christian spectrum. The KEDS Certificate in Jewish-Christian Studies consists of six core modules:
> JCS1 The Jewish People, The Church, the Bible and Theology
> JCS2 The Jewish People, the Church and Biblical Interpretation
> JCS3 The Jewish People, the Church and History
> JCS4 The Jewish People, the Church and the Gospel
> JCS5 The Jewish People, the Church and Ecclesiology
> JCS6 The Jewish People, the Church, Politics and the Land
An informational leaflet of the courses is available here.
THE ADVANCED CERTIFICATE IN JEWISH-CHRISTIAN STUDIES
The Advanced Certificate requires completion of two additional extended 20-credit units:
TH4613 Biblical Hebrew for Beginners
TH4615 Lands of the Bible
These two 20-credit units are validated by the University of Chester. Students moving on to the Advanced Certificate are formally enrolled with the university as Associate Students at King’s and upon completion receive a university transcript detailing these 40 credits, which may then be used towards our B.Th. degree or an early exit award (Certificate/ Diploma of Higher Education in Theology).
The fees for the Certificate and Advanced Certificate are as follows:
- All applicants pay an application fee of 35 GBP when submitting an application.
- The fee for eCampus access and the first module (JCS1) is 89 GBP.
- Subsequent modules (JCS2-JCS6) are 69 GBP each
Following the Coronavirus outbreak KEDS is temporarily reducing tuition fees by 50% for this programme to make it as accessible as possible (particularly for those isolated at home). Anyone applying before 31 May 2020 will still pay the application fee, however the first module fee is now reduced from 89 GBP to 45 GBP and subsequent modules will be charged at 35 GBP instead of 69 GBP. For couples or small groups enroling together there is a further reduction of 5 GBP per module per person.
Once a student is successfully enroled these reduced fees will apply for a year from the date of enrolment, meaning the more modules completed during that year, the more saved.
These measures represent a considerable saving, especially given the substantial access provided to numerous theological resources.
Anyone choosing to progress to the Advanced Certificate pay additional fees for those two modules (these are the same fee as BTh modules).
The total fees are spread throughout the duration of the course, just one module in advance (i.e. students only pay for the module they are working on). Maximum permitted course duration for the Certificate is three calendar years from the date of acceptance on to the course (students must complete a minimum of two modules a year).
The Advanced Certificate is only available upon successful completion of the Certificate. The two advanced modules must be completed within one calendar year of commencement of the Advanced Certificate.
