The Common Awards Scheme is a partnership between Durham University, the Church of England (and other partner churches), and your designated Theological Education Institution (TEI).
Approximately 2,500 students are registered on Common Awards programmes. Your main relationship will be with your TEI; they are your first point of call for information and advice about all aspects of your educational experience, including teaching and assessment, personal support, and administrative matters. The pages in this section, however, include information on the resources provided to students as part of the Common Awards framework.
This guide has been created in response to the Common Awards Student Survey feedback, to help improve students’ understanding of the Common Awards partnership, the relationship between their TEI and the University, the role of the University in their time as a Common Awards student, and any key information they may find useful. The guide is intended to complement induction information already shared by TEIs.

The University, the TEIs and the National Ministry Team all work closely together to deliver the Common Awards programmes to students, and continuously provide feedback to one another, with the student voice being an essential part of this ongoing conversation.
The Common Awards scheme is a three-way partnership between Durham, the TEIs, and the Church of England. Find the right contact information through our Contact Us page.
