Our short courses offer many ways to study
Why not explore learning with Nazarene Theological College, enhance your personal or ministerial formation, or build on the units you’ve studied by taking an evening class or one of our other flexible study options?
There are numerous ways to study on a short-term basis. Whether it’s a single class that interests you or a number of classes over a longer period, the chance to become part of the academic community here at NTC is yours. The following information will help you decide what to register for:
Audit/Credit Classes (One-off classes)
NTC welcomes students who simply want to take a course unit or two. ‘Audit students’ don’t have to go through the formality of application and interviews, but can simply register online using the link below before the start of the semester. There are no examinations or coursework for audit classes so you can join in simply for the pleasure of learning!
Individual evening classes and day classes can also be taken for credit (dependent on completing all the coursework), but without committing to a full college programme. Course units earned can then be transferred into a Certificate, Diploma, or full Degree course. Each class is two hours long and usually run for eleven weeks through the semester or a one-week ‘intensive’.
To register for any of our individual evening or daytime classes you can use the online form or send an email to email@example.com
