Who is IBI for?
IBI is open to Christians who love God and want to study the Bible in a deeper way, develop their faith and to be better equipped to serve.
There isn’t one! We have both male and female students of various nationalities, denominations and ages. We welcome students who intend to enter full or part-time ministry such as pastoral, youth, teaching or worship roles. Our courses are also open to those who want to develop their faith and to explore the Scriptures. We also welcome students who are not yet sure where God is leading them.
We have both male and female students of various nationalities, denominations and ages. Most students who apply are already engaged in full-time work or ministry and wish to enhance the application of their faith to their situation. Our courses are also open to those who have studied theology at undergraduate level and wish to continue their studies.
No. IBI is the only non-denominational evangelical theological college in the Republic of Ireland. IBI’s lecturers and students come from a wide variety of denominations and networks such as Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, charismatic, Church of Ireland and independent churches..
We offer full and part-time Certificate, BA and MA programmes in Applied Theology. We also offer short courses in the form of modules and online courses.
Our BA and MA programmes are validated by York St John University.
For more information about access routes, admissions criteria and the application process, please see here for BA application details and here for MA application details.
In order to facilitate the many students who come from all corners of Ireland, our BA classes are compressed into two full days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so that students only require one night’s accommodation in Dublin. The MA modules are taught in week-long ‘blocks’ to facilitate students who are not Dublin-based. We also offer online certificate-level, non-validated modules.
We offer a module on Tuesday evenings from 7 – 9.45 pm. (This subject changes each term). The MA modules are taught in week-long ‘blocks’ to facilitate students who work full-time. We also offer online modules so you can study from home.
