We have received word that our Registration may be imminent and that we might finally be able to start offering the BTh programme.
As a recap: the Seminary was deregistered in 2011. To be able to offer academic programmes again ESSA needed to have the programmes accredited (BTh was now accredited in Nov 2017) and to have the programmes entered into the SAQA database (done in March 2018). The final step is to have ESSA registered as Private Higher Education Institution by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).
We are only permitted to advertise the programme and register students once all three criteria have been met. Currently we are awaiting the final outcome of the last step: Registration as PHEI with DHET.
IF this final step is completed by Friday 31st May 2019 we will start the BTh programme as follows:
|6-7 June||Orientation for New Students|
|08-12 July||COR 101: Study Skills and Research Methods|
|05-09 August||BIB 103: NT Survey pt 1|
|10 August||Spiritual Formation|
|12-16 August||BIB 104: NT Survey pt 2|
|09-13 September||BIB 101: OT Survey pt 1|
|14 September||Spiritual Formation|
|16-20 September||BIB 102: OT Survey pt 2|
|07-11 October||TRA 102: Turning Points in Christianity|
|04-08 November||MIN 101: Teaching as Ministry|
As time is running short the actual decision of whether or not we will be able to run the programme in 2019 will be extremely short-notice.
We will keep you informed about any new developments.
