Biblical and Intercultural StudiesThe Open University

If you are heading for cross-cultural mission service and have one, two or three years available for training then the Undergraduate Programme is for you. Each year is designed so that one year of study can lead into the next, offering students a unique learning experience, guiding and equipping them as they progress through the course.

Degree

The OU-validated degree course is aimed at those preparing for long-term cross-cultural mission service and who appreciate the balance of practical and academic study.  Overall, the degree programme will enable you to develop communication skills and the ability to analyse, evaluate and design suitable approaches to diverse cultural contexts.  Students can take each year of the BA (Hons) in Biblical and Intercultural Studies either residentially (through campus-based learning) or via Flexible Delivery mode, where remote and campus-based students study together. 

All Nations Christian College is approved by the Open University (OU) as an appropriate organisation to offer higher education programmes leading to Open University validated awards. We offer OU validated Certificate, Diploma and Degree programmes of study as well as our own non-validated ANCC Certificate and ANCC Diploma programmes. Students can transfer from an OU programme to an ANCC programme but not vice versa.
