Greenwich School of Theology is renowned for providing first-class degrees in theology (Doctoral and Masters degrees) through the North-West University in RSA, an accredited institution. We provide for a range of requirements, whether you’re wishing to advance academically or studying to better prepare for ministry or missionary endeavours. We are very proud of the high standard of the theology degree programmes and also of the level of support we strive to offer individual students throughout their time with us: these are distinctive in terms of distance-learning academia.
- As a non-profit organisation, founded in 1958, we continue to offer students from all backgrounds access to excellence in the academic study of theological and religious subjects.
- In 1997, a partnership was formalised between the North-West University in South Africa and the Greenwich School of Theology, UK. This enabled GST to provide research theology degrees at a distance to applicants from across the globe, with NWU as the conferring body, providing regulation, scholarly support and accreditation. GST tutors are experienced academics, formally approved by NWU to provide our community of students and researchers with personalised attention and effective support during their studies.
- The NWU is one of the leading universities in South Africa, founded in 1869, merged in 2004 and one of the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) that are internationally assessed and recognized.

Following one of its biennial inspections of GST, the Open and Distance Learning Quality Council UK welcomed GST’s “important and distinctive role, which is not covered by any other accredited college”. We are honoured by this valued testimonial of our good work as providers of theological education at a distance.
