The trustees of St John’s College, Nottingham, have announced this week the decision to close the college and to ask the Queen’s Foundation to take over responsibility for its long established distance learning programme.
We are glad to be able to continue the vital work of making theological education as widely accessible as possible through distance and online learning. We share St John’s pioneering spirit and are grateful that the trustees have seen fit to find a new home for this work in Queen’s. We are excited at the opportunity to continue and develop the progammes and we hope it will not be long before final arrangements can be announced when discussions have been completed and agreed with the University and St John’s Trustees. Above all, we look forward to welcoming continuing students and staff to the communities of learning in Queen’s.
