STUDENT LIFE

Student activities are designed to help develop an atmosphere for growth and maturity – socially, physically, spiritually and academically.

Each year the students elect officers to assist in planning and organising student activities both on and off campus. The Student Council is the official body to represent the students. It includes a Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer and a Sports Officer.

Chapel, College Prayer & Spiritual Emphasis Days

Students are expected to attend and participate in all chapel services, College prayer sessions and morning devotions as well as Spiritual Emphasis Days which are held annually.

Student Development & Assessment

Students are expected at all times and in all places to conduct themselves in line with the purpose and objectives of the college. It is desired that their lives are consistent with the Christian faith and honouring the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. The college is, therefore, particularly committed to the spiritual development and the character formation of all students. It is hoped that the knowledge and understanding gained through the guided study of the Bible and related subjects will contribute to the achievement of this goal.

 

Areas of study include Biblical, Historical, Theological/Doctrinal, Educational and Practical Studies. In addition to class work all students are expected to be involved in a supervised ministry assignment in a local church or Christian organisation. The focus of this field education programme is on personal maturity, theological reflection, and skill development.

At the end of every term, the faculty meets to assess each student across the broad spectrum of personal, spiritual, academic and ministry progress. During this process, if there are particular concerns with any student, these are noted in the student’s record and discussed between that student and his/her counselling tutor.  Exam results for NCHE registered programmes are aproved by the college Senate. Appropriate progress must be made in the following term in order for such a student to continue at the college.

STUDENT FINANCES

  • The tuition fee contributes to the running costs of the college but does not cover them fully; the needs for capital items and library resources are met almost entirely by donations.
  • The medical fee covers the cost of basic medical care provided at the college.
  • The accommodation fee is charged to residential students to cover the costs of maintenance and utilities.
  • The registration fee is charged to every student at the beginning of each semester.
  • Finances for the students' food and domestic items is managed directly by the students. The college does not determine the figure, but can provide a recommended guideline on request.

MEDICAL CARE

  1. The College endeavours to provide a basic level of on-campus medical care for students.
  2. In cases of serious illness (where a student is unfit to go to the hospital on his/her own), the College will be responsible for taking him/her to the nearest government hospital or clinic.
  3. Upon admission, the Student Council will provide food while the college will provide public transport fare to the hospital or clinic for up to one week.
  4. The student’s church or family will be informed immediately to arrange for someone to care for him/her.
  5. Should the student be in hospital for more than a week, the church/family will assume the responsibilities related to the hospitalisation.
