CRES (Christian Rural and Environmental Studies) is a distance learning course usually taken over two years. If you are interested probably the best place to look first is our CRES Certificate page. Then you might have some questions. If that is the case try our Frequently Asked Questions page first! If you still have questions then Contact Us. Then finally if you would like to apply download an Application Form and send it back to us with your payment (ONLY electronically at the moment).
The course usually starts in September or October. However, it is possible to start CRES early, and that may be fairly common in 2020 during the coronavirus crisis, with many countries locked down. CRES has the flexibility to deal with this and tutorials are possible by Skype or other electronic means. We will restart our meetings at Ripon College Cuddesdon as soon as it is practicable to do so. One point to remember is that we only have one graduation event a year in September. So a student starting in, for example, April 2020 will have the choice of completing by September 2021 or September 2022.
