Having looked around online for a UK Bible College to continue my distance learning from Germany, I was steered towards King's Evangelical Divinity School by a friend who was studying with them. I liked the look of their MA course, and so applied to continue my further education with King's.
Having just completed the MA, I can very strongly recommend King's as a ‘very satisfied student’! I was immediately taken with their easy-to-use online learning system, which gave overviews and very helpful initial resources for each of the six MA modules. The module content was inspiring and rigorous, and encouraged further research into areas of global evangelicalism.The essay assignments were easy to submit (which for those perhaps struggling with IT were definitely user-friendly), and the marking was both constructively critical and encouraging. As a distance learner, the KEDS office as a point of telephone and e-mail contact was extremely helpful and at times I was also able to talk over issues with Calvin Smith when he was available, which was always insightful and valuable advice.
When it came to the dissertation, again, the advice and insight given was crucially important. I am planning to recommend KEDS to my friends as an online ‘gem’ of a Bible College, and the fact that they are accredited by Chester University gives KEDS the kind of credentials it deserves. Partly due to the smooth experience I have had with KEDS, I am now planning to go on and complete my PhD, and can only hope that my doctoral learning experience will even in measure mirror that of my experience with KEDS.
