Bachelor of Theology - Residential 


The Bachelor of Theology (English medium) is a three-year residential programme:

  • Year 1: Spiritual development. This year involves some very important teaching, and you will have some of the most significant learning experiences of your life. The first-year courses have been built to ensure that you will experience real character and spiritual development.

  • Year 2: Ministry skill development. This year is focused on building your ministry skills – leading worship and prayer times, leading small groups, pastoral care and visitation, children’s and youth ministry, evangelism. Substantial parts of this year will be spent in a church-based setting under the mentorship and training of UBS alumni who are active ministers of the gospel.

  • Year 3: Preaching skill development. This year is focused on building your preaching skill. There will be intensive training in biblical study and sermon preparation together with development of a strong theological framework to support this. As the year progresses growing attention will be given to speaking to the heart of the hearers in their heart language. By the end of the year you will have the training needed to sustain a God-honouring lifetime of preaching and teaching.
