Internationally Accredited Postgraduate Theology Degrees

Enabling learning and rewarding attainment
GST is renowned for providing first-class, accredited distance-learning postgraduate research degrees at doctoral level. We provide for a range of requirements, whether a student is to advance academically, to study to better prepare for ministry, or for missionary endeavours.
As a non-profit organisation, founded in 1958, GST continues to offer students from all backgrounds access to excellence in the academic study of theological and religious subjects.
In 2019, a partnership was formalised between the Greenwich School of Theology (GST) and the Theological University of Apeldoorn (TUA) in the Netherlands, an accredited institution. This enables GST to continue offering an accredited doctoral theology degree to students from all over the world, with TUA as the conferring body, as well as providing regulation and scholarly support. GST tutors are internationally recognized and experienced academics, approved by TUA to provide the GST community of students and researchers with personalised attention and effective support during their studies.
The PhD is conferred by the Theological University of Apeldoorn (TUA) in the Netherlands, an institution accredited by NVAO (The Netherlands Flanders Accreditation Organisation), which meets the legal requirements. TUA recently celebrated 125 years as a provider of theological degree programmes.

Cooperation Theological University of Apeldoorn (TUA) and Greenwich School of Theology (GST)

The Theological University of Apeldoorn (TUA) now enters a new era of close cooperation with the Greenwich School of Theology (GST) in the UK. The aim of the agreement that was signed this week is to enable PhD students to obtaining their degree. GST is an independent, private institute that has been presenting theology degree programmes since 1958. In addition, GST offers a distance learning opportunity to obtain a doctorate. Up to now GST had cooperated with the North-West University of South-Africa.
From the 1st October 2019, the PhD programmes will continue through cooperation between GST and TUA. This agreement implies that the PhD-programmes, designed and developed over the past decades by GST, will still be presented to the international network, for the benefit of the church and theology worldwide.
Both TUA and GST are excited and grateful about the new era. Prof. dr. Herman Selderhuis, rector of TUA: ‘This agreement with GST fits right into the strategic plans we recently designed, and gives Apeldoorn an extra possibility to contribute to reformed academic theology´. Prof. Dries du Plooy, chairperson of GST: ‘This agreement greatly benefits both institutions in that it contributes to the availability of theology to more people’.

About Theological University of Apeldoorn (TUA):
A six-year theology course is presented at the Theological University of Apeldoorn. The study programme focuses on scientific quality, linked to the profound and professional equipment of students. The university, as a theological institute of the Christian Reformed Churches in the Netherlands, is committed to the (scientific) practice of reformed theology. In addition to the training of pastors and theologians, TUA also makes a contribution to reflect on the socio-cultural issues prevalent t in modern society, issues inside and outside the church, and on the advancement of theological science in general. In addition to the bachelor's and master's programmes, TUA also presents PhD-programmes in the field of theology.

Byron Evans – passed away

We received the very sad message this morning from Peg Evans that her husband Byron Evans, passed away yesterday evening. She was with him when it happened, and fortunately her daughter Catherine and son David with their spouses were also present and supported her.

All of us had a very special relationship with Byron and his death touches us deeply. I assured Peg of GST’s deepest sympathy, prayers and appreciation of what Byron with Peg on his side did in God’s Kingdom, and particularly then for GST.
