The application finishes with a request for a testimony (approx. 300 words) including your salvation and involvement in church.


Please make sure that you provide a photocopy of a passport or driver license that will be valid for at least the first six months of your studies.

*For Higher Education applications only – your passport needs to be certified, explanation found here.

Provide official documents

Official documents checklist
A. Online Pastoral Reference Form
B. Transcripts (For Higher Education apps only)
C. English Proficiency (if needed)

Once you have submitted your application you will have ongoing communication with the Admissions Team and your personal Case Manager. During this communication you will be asked to please provide specific documentation that is necessary before we are able to process your application.

A. Online Pastoral Reference Form
All our applicants must provide an Online Pastoral Reference Form completed by a leader or a pastor.

Here are important things to consider:

  • Within your application you will be asked to provide us with your leader’s or pastor’s full name and email address. Once you submit your application form, the Online Pastoral Reference form will automatically be sent out to your pastor/ leader. The pastor/ leader will click on the link sent to their email in order to complete your Online Pastoral Reference form, once completed we will receive your reference back automatically to process.
  • It is an entry requirement that you have been planted and serving at your current church for a minimum of 12 months. Therefore your Online Pastoral Reference form needs to reflect the past 12 months of your current church involvement. If you have been part of two different churches in the past 12 months, please provide your case manager with your other leader’s/ pastor’s full name and email address for us to send a second Online Pastoral Reference form to them.
  • If a leader is completing your Online Pastoral Reference form, then the leader will need to have your reference form co-signed by a pastor from your current church, this step is completed within the link as well.
  • If your pastor is a relative, please rather provide us with your leader’s full name and email address within your application form so that the leader can complete your reference for you, and it can be co-signed by the pastor who is a relative.

B. Transcripts (for Higher Education apps. only)
Please provide us with a certified photocopy of your official transcripts. You can find requirements for a certified document here.

Once you have submitted all required documents, your case manager will put your application forward to be processed by our Student Liaison Team. You can expect to hear from us regarding your next steps within 3-5 business days. If there is any further information we require, it will be requested at this time.

C. English Proficiency (if needed)

To be eligible for admissions into our Online Degree Programs there is an English proficiency entry requirement that needs to be met. Applicants for whom English is a second language must achieve a minimum of 6.5 on the IELTS Academic test with no individual score below 6.0 (or equivalent score in TOEFL, PTE, CAE) or achieve English Study in one of the following countries for 5 years (provide transcripts): Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, United Kingdom or United States.
