2023 Academic Schedule
Eastwest operates a semester-based study programme. Students may enter the study programme at the beginning of a semester, in February or July.
For the duration of your study at Eastwest College you will be part of a ministry team with a weekly opportunity to be engaged in real-life learning and ministry in the surrounding area. This applied learning is not an optional extra, but is integrated as a core component of the training provided to all students.
Part-time study options are available if you are unable to commit to full-time study. If you choose to study part-time you will complete your training over a longer period by selecting subjects to work around your existing schedule. If you wish to know more about this approach to study, contact us and we can start exploring the options.
Other institutions may cross-credit elements of Eastwest’s qualifications towards degree level qualifications when requested by graduates.
Eastwest Diploma graduates who already hold a first accredited degree may be exempt the first year of a Master’s degree with Columbia International University (USA). For more information please contact them directly.
