At St. Andrew's we strive to be inclusive and recognize each student's unique journey.
I chose St. Andrew's because of the emphasis on the integration of our theological studies with practical ministry experience and community involvement.
St. Andrew's blessed my life with social struggles and deep faith.
I was challenged to think about decision making and ethical dilemmas in a new way.
St. Andrew's prepared me
for a lifetime of ministry
and congregational service.
I grew in confidence over time, due in large part to the support of teachers, family and friends and the tenacious presence of the Spirit.
We know you are strong in faith, but for many students finances can be a stumbling block when considering the ministry. St. Andrew's wants to help through the offer of a full year’s paid tuition for full-time students in the Master of Divinity program. And, bursaries and tuition assistance, plus the opportunity for earned income during residency, is our way of helping all students answer their financial questions.
Preparation for the vocation of ministry and earning a post-secondary degree is expensive and St. Andrew’s offers significant financial support to students through non-competitive bursaries and tuition relief.
The college provides full academic tuition paid by friends of the college for 30 credit hours – one full year of study – for full-time students enrolled in the M.Div. program. In addition, the residency tuition will be fully rebated for M.Div. students. Students are also provided a book allowance and have access to a series of bursaries and financial supports through the college and wider church.
Many of our course requirements may also be met through online and distance study. Students enrolled in the M.Div. Residency Program will have the opportunity of earned income and benefits during the residency and while completing their degree.
