How the course works  

In the first year there are two compulsory elements, a beginners course in a Scriptural Language (Hebrew, New Testament Greek, Sanskrit or Qur'anic Arabic) and a Biblical Paper (New Testament or Old Testament Studies). From there on, there is complete freedom of choice.

A list of all possible papers, with detailed descriptions can be found here in the course resources section for current students.
