Note: The dates in the table signify the starting date of each period, which begins on Monday (except for Course Registration which is on a Friday).

The academic calendar begins in January. Each academic year is divided into two semesters of 18 weeks each. Each semester is divided into two terms of 8 weeks each, with a two-week break in between the two terms. Course Registration is held on the Friday before the beginning of each semester. Students are to submit the selection of their courses pending the approval of the Academic Dean. Exams will be held on the last week of each semester (for semester-modules) or on the last week of term (for term-modules). Special week-long seminars will be conducted by invited professors at the last week of June.

Academic Load: The curriculum for the academic programmes is designed to provide a balance of biblical studies, theological studies and pastoral/ministry training to equip the students. The curriculum comprises core subjects in Old Testament / New Testament studies, Christian Education, Church History, Theology and Pastoral Theology. The study of Biblical Languages is required for degree programmes. Students are expected to enrol for an average of 16 credits per semester in order to complete the requirement of the course. Students who wish to enrol for more than 16 credits per semester must seek the approval of the Academic Dean.
