HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into
effect on 2 January.


Decree (1): Changes to certain
quota and fee provisions consequential upon the
introduction of a part-time Degree of Bachelor of
Theology

Explanatory note

For some years Council has fixed by decree the total
number of home and EU students permitted at any one time
to read for certain degrees and other qualifications at
each of the Permanent Private Halls, and the maximum
number of candidates whom the Anglican Theological
Colleges have been permitted collectively to present for
matriculation each year. The following decree, made on
the recommendation of the Theology Board and with the
concurrence of the General Board, increases the current
quota for two of the Permanent Private Halls and for the
Anglican Theological Colleges to take account of a likely
increase in numbers consequential upon the introduction
of a new part-time Degree of Bachelor of Theology. At the
same time opportunity is taken (in cl. 2) to delete an
obsolete provision concerning numbers at Harris
Manchester College overlooked when that institution was
granted full collegiate status. The decree also (in cl.
5) sets the fee for the part-time course at half the
current full-time rate. It is recognised that a
significant proportion of the fees legislation will need
to be revised in the light of the Government's decision
to replace the current system of differentiated fees,
reimbursed in the main by the LEAs, by a flat-rate fee of
£1,000 to be paid personally, subject to
means-testing, by each student. No guidance has yet been
issued by the DfEE on the detailed implications of this,
in particular for fees for part-time courses. The fee
provision included in the decree may need to be revised,
once further guidance is received.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. V, Sect. X, cl. 1
(a), concerning matriculation for theological
courses of members of certain institutions
(Statutes, 1997, p. 371), delete `thirty
qualified candidates' and substitute `thirty-six
full-time-equivalent qualified candidates'.

2 In Ch. XI, Sect. VII, concerning
numbers at Permanent Private Halls (p. 783), delete
`Harris Manchester112'.

3 Ibid., after `Regent's Park 85'
insert `(plus 10 full- time-equivalent students for the
part-time B.Th. course)'.

4 Ibid., after `Wycliffe Hall 55'
insert `(plus 6 full-time- equivalent students for the
part-time B.Th. course)'.

5 In Examination
Decrees
, 1977, p. 1100, l. 2, concerning
composition fees, after `working for the' insert `B.Th.
or'.

6 Clause 2 of this decree shall
have immediate effect; clauses 1 and 3--5 shall be
effective from 1 October 1998.
