To save time later on, it is important that you have read, understand and meet all of our pre-requisites for study at All Nations.

Some of these requirements are our own; others are from the Open University who validates our study programmes.

All Nations' primary aim is to provide training for people who expect to work in cross-cultural situations either within or outside their own country. If you believe that God is calling you to such work, then it is important that you make time for appropriate training.

Below are the entrance criteria for our study programmes. For full details of the Undergraduate and Masters programmes admissions criteria, please see the College Admissions Policy.

In some cases, where they do not meet the academic requirements due to exceptional circumstances, a written piece of work may be set to assess their academic suitability for the course they have applied for (see College Admissions Policy for further details).

Entry at Level Five (BA Hons entry at Level Two)

Entry at Level Five will normally mean possession of an honours bachelor degree (or equivalent) in any subject, or 120 CAT points from an accredited Bible College. Transcripts may be required. Applicants also need to satisfy the College that they have sufficient biblical and theological knowledge and skills (see the College Admissions Policy for further details).
