Academic information

The Centre for Discipleship and Theology (CDT) follows a pattern of three terms a year, broadly similar to university terms, and timetabled teaching takes place within these terms. The modules for which you are registered will be agreed with you at the start of each academic year. You will normally share these classes with a wide range of other students in the Foundation.

Queen’s offers the opportunity to study via two discrete training tracks: 'college-style' (Track 1) and 'course-style' (Track 2). Within each track there are a number of possible pathways. For some 'illustrative pathways' click here; these should give you an idea of the broad shape of the kinds of pathways on offer at Queen's. Pathways are defined by particular content and they result in different academic awards. 

The following academic awards are available to CDT students who meet the relevant entrance requirements:
