The Professional Doctorate in Practical Theology was launched in 2006. It is offered by Anglia Ruskin University in cooperation with the Cambridge Theological Federation. We are part of a national consortium offering this award and participants meet together in a Summer School every year with candidates and staff from the Universities of Aberdeen, Birmingham, Chester and Glasgow.

Anglia Ruskin University has renewed and updated its regulations for Professional Doctorates. This means that the highly popular Professional Doctorate in Practical Theology will need to undergo revalidation with the university before we can recruit, as from September 2017. The Cambridge Theological Federation is engaged in a process of strategic planning for its Professional Doctorate, and hopes to be able to offer on this website as from Spring 2017 the chance to apply for a revised and enhanced Professional Doctorate programme.
