Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA)

ACA, your way.

Recently we announced changes to Newbold’s course offerings and organisational structure. While these changes will primarily affect our Business, Humanities, and English Language courses and programmes, we are still able to offer intake for the ACA programme for January 2021. The changes should not affect our offerings in the Department of Theological Studies.

About the Programme

At Newbold you can study British Literature in the country where it was written, just a stone’s throw away from where important historical events took place and where classic literature was inspired.

You can do all this by coming to Newbold for a semester or two through the Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) programme.

Why study the Adventist College Abroad programme with us?

  • Visit the sites and towns associated with renowned authors such as Shakespeare, Austen, Dickens, Tolkien and Lewis.
  • Become immersed in historical landmarks such as Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London and Stonehenge

Earn credits towards your degree as well as general education and electives. At least six guided trips take place per semester

Your future matters.

  • Develop both personally and professionally as you expand your comfort zone through studying abroad
  • Experience what the British lifestyle and culture has to offer, through study tours, lectures and other opportunities

Essential Information

How to apply for our ACA programme

As an ACA student, you will need to apply through your home Adventist college of university. This allows you to keep any federal and state loans and grants (and in some cases scholarships) that you normally receive, as well as educational subsidy for qualified students.

The modules

The ACA programme gives you the freedom to choose between 15 us credits in each semester, from modules within the study areas listed. Generally, 15 US credits equals five modules, worth 3 us credits each, although the number of credits a module is worth may occasionally vary.
