Not all people take the same path to seminary studies. Thus, LTS has developed a PLAR process for those who do not have completed university undergraduate degrees. If you are over 31 years of age and interested in studying at LTS, but do not have a Bachelor’s degree from a university, there are alternatives. To explore whether you qualify for the PLAR process, and for more information about this alternative, please look at the file on this website entitled Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition Policies and Procedure.Then, if you qualify for this process, fill in the PLAR application form; please do this before you fill in the application form for the degree program for which you would like to apply, to see if you are eligible.



The purpose of the LTS Challenge Scholarships Programme is to ensure that high-quality candidates for church leadership, in paid or unpaid, formal or informal positions, are able to receive thorough training with minimal concern for finances. Awards will reflect these priorities. To learn more about the Challenge Scholarship, click here. To apply for the scholarship, click here.

Application forms for all LTS programs are now online (see application links below).

Please note that some programs will require additional materials from the applicant, over and above that which the applicant submits via the online application form. These additional materials, such as transcript and references are listed on the application form and must be mailed separately to the Seminary.
