Since 2020, following a College-wide re-orientation, our sole focus has been on delivering a preparatory experience that trains leaders in ministry. We offer an undergraduate degree in Biblical and Pastoral Studies, a postgraduate degree in Theology, a Graduate Diploma in Biblical and Pastoral Studies, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Ministry and Mission. Your journey will be faith-affirming, dynamic, and transformative. Find out more today.
Our Courses
Your training
Empowering your ministry through devoted guidance

Our blended syllabus has been thoughtfully crafted to ensure that your theoretical learning experience is interlaced with practical opportunities. This will enable you to broaden your horizons, think critically and expose you to real-world realities.

Academic support here is accessible. Our intimate classroom settings mean that you can take advantage of the 1:1 tutorial offering, your essays are read twice through, and your spiritual and personal enrichment is a priority.

We believe that taking a holistic approach to campus life is integral to impactful ministry. Our campus serves as a close-knit community of support where perspectives, cultures and ideas are shared in a safe space to explore and discover.
