We’re throwing open the doors of Pilgrim Theological College for our inaugural Open Day on Tuesday, 20 October and you’re invited to come and visit our College and experience the Pilgrim difference.
Featuring public lectures and the opportunity to meet our faculty and staff as well as plenty of refreshments, prospective and current University of Divinity students can also find out about the huge range of new units unique to Pilgrim available to you in 2016.
Available at undergraduate and post-graduate levels, and as on- or off-campus units, these new units will offer plenty of choice for students planning to enter or continue theological studies.
