KEDS is a non-denominational Higher Education provider of innovative and competitively-priced online courses in theology. We specialise in biblical studies, particularly hermeneutics (biblical interpretation), Evangelical theology and Jewish-Christian studies.

Our BTh, MA and Graduate Diploma degrees are validated by the University of Chester. We also offer short courses in the Bible, theology and ministry.

KEDS is a confessional school, with tutors and students from across the Evangelical spectrum. We are also international in context, with around half of faculty from outside the UK and some 40% of online students residing overseas.
