For the Knowing Your Bible and Jewish-Christian Studies programmes, book requirements are minimal. Most of the reading for these modules is provided via the eCampus, though you may be expected to buy several titles. If taking a stand-alone language module such as Hebrew or Greek you will be expoected to buy the relevant textbook(s).
For the BTh, Graduate Diploma and MA degrees, fees include access to various reading resources and there is no prescribed list of textbooks to buy. Nonetheless students should still expect to budget for some books during their programme of study. Modules for these programmes provide indicative rather than prescribed reading lists, so it is not like studying in North America where students have to buy hundreds of dollars of books.
KEDS provides a great deal of reading resources online via full-text journal packages, as well as providing students with details on how to access other reading materials. The school encourages students to buy titles which will not only serve them during their study time at KEDS but that will also continue to be valuable study tools after graduation.
