Flexible Study

Not everyone can study full or part-time, or wishes to pursue a validated award. IBI offers the option of studying in a way that will fit in with your current commitments.

You can study at IBI during the day, in the evening, online, as part of a ‘short course’ or in any combination of these.

All of our options are biblically-based and applicable to church, ministry and real life as a Christian. That is what “applied theology” is all about!
