Distance Learning

distance learning 2

Coming onto campus to study is not suitable for everyone.  St John’s pioneered distance learning over forty years ago and offers high quality programmes and short residential courses.

You can opt for study leading to a university validated qualification or our more flexible internal award.

Residential Short Courses

We offer a variety of short courses on campus. Most take place over a weekend or a working week. The college buildings are set in beautiful grounds which provide space for relaxation and reflection. A welcoming Christian community, we place worship and fellowship a the centre of all our activities. Our experience is that people who come away for residential short courses appreciate and value this focus. Our short courses have an excellent tutor/student ratio and there is plenty of opportunity for interaction between students and with tutors.
