The course is a part-time programme which has some options about what days it is on (see below). Tuesday is the College foundation day, Wednesday is the placement day, Thursday is the ministry stream day and Sunday is when we have the church gatherings.
You can choose to apply for just the College foundation day if you wish, and then apply for a ministry stream in the following year. If you have already done Form in a previous year (or a suitable equivalent) you can apply for just the ministry stream day.
