All students begin the course in September. Each year is made up of three terms, totalling thirty weeks of study.
Our course includes lectures, seminars and workshops, as well as personal study, learning Hebrew and Greek, writing essays and reading and research.
All students study all modules of the course, to provide a solid foundation for life in the ministry.
Teaching takes place from Tuesday to Friday each week during term.
The day begins at 8:45 – usually with morning devotions, led by a student or lecturer.
Hebrew (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) or Greek (Thursdays and Fridays) normally follow, for 45 minutes.
The rest of the morning is taken up with lectures and seminars.
There are lectures on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Wednesday and Friday afternoons are normally free for personal study.
The course is intensive and students will need to be disciplined with their time.
In their personal study, students are expected to prepare for biblical languages classes and for seminars and workshops, to research and write essays and to read set texts. This is in addition to preparing for preaching and other areas of service outside the Seminary.
