Midlands Bible College and Divinity School

The Midlands Bible College and Divinity School (formerly the Midlands Bible College) is a distance learning Christian College based in England. It offers theological qualifications that are accredited by the University of Wales, Lampeter. Several other non-degree courses are also available from the college. The college programmes focus mainly upon exegesis and Biblical Hermeneutics.


The Midlands Bible College was founded in 1990. Initially the focus was on classroom based teaching at the college premises in Wolverhampton near Birmingham, England, but has since shifted to focus almost entirely upon distance learning. In 2008 the name of the college was changed to Midlands Bible College and Divinity School to reflect its seminary-level studies and a forthcoming Master of Arts programme in Theology.


The current principal, and director of Undergraduate education is the Rev'd. Dr. Calvin Smith BA MEd PhD. He is assisted by a number of faculty including a number of high profile staff, including:
* Dr David Bostock
* Rev'd Dr. Colin Warner (former superintendent minister of Assemblies of God)
* Dr. Stephen Vantassel


* Bachelor in Theology
* Certificate of Higher Education in Biblical Hermeneutics
* Diploma of Higher Education in Biblical Hemeneutics
* Know Your Bible [Not Accredited]

Upon completion of the DipHE, students can transfer to the University of Lampeter to complete the final year of the BA in Theology, or complete the newly accredited BTh programme provided by the College. The Midlands Bible College is currently developing a final year programme as well as an MA in Evangelical Studies programme. Degree level modules can also be taken individually as separate units of private study. The college offers the following modules (10 or 20 credit) all of which can be taken by open or distance learning:

* Introduction to the Bible
