How does correspondence / distance education work?
Distance learning gives you the freedom to study at a time that suits you. You have the advantage of being able to study from home or work from any location.
How long will my course take?
It's up to you. With Trinity, you set your own pace. Complete your course as quickly or as slowly as you like.
Are there any pre-requisites for my course?
None of the courses require you to have prior knowledge of the subject.
How is distance learning different from classroom-based courses?
- Studying by correspondence gives you greater flexibility. Trinity International Theological Seminary students have the ability to develop their own learning schedule around current commitments. Face-to-face based courses require students to attend class dictated by a formal timetable.
- Most classroom-based educators require a minimum class attendance rate of 80% in order for you to pass the course. As there are no classes to attend when you study via correspondence, you have the flexibility to go on holiday, study while you earn, start a family or simply manage your time more effectively around your commitments.
- There are no formalized timetables at Trinity, which means you can complete your course around full-time work. This eliminates any potential financial strain and gives you more time to spend with your family and friends. It also means you can complete your course in less time than similar courses at other classroom-based institutions.
- Studying with the Trinity International Theological Seminary means no classes to attend. This saves you time and money travelling to and from class and gives you greater freedom to decide when and where you want to study. Plus, you don't have the hassle of travelling to class on public transport or paying for parking.
