You are able to communicate with other students and your course tutor on MySats. Since the feeling of isolation is one of the great challenges of distance learning, sharing your journey with other students is a great help. Students are allowed direct access to their tutors through MySats.


Paced Learning

By assigning due dates for all assignments and completion dates for all courses, MySats helps you to pace your studies in such a way that you are able to complete your qualification in good time by doing one course in each three-month term. The assignment dates are spread out to make your time-management easy – you just need to work steadily to complete your course.

Postgraduate School

The PGS site is the online platform where students doing advanced theological studies and our postgraduate faculty collaborate and discuss topics of mutual interest. The platform supports students doing postgraduate courses as well as those doing thesis work. Students upload their assignments, thesis chapters and any other documents relevant to their studies and they have the peace of mind that these valuable sources will be securely kept and will remain readily accessible. The platform also provides information of relevance to students and faculty, as well as access to a wide range of research material. Access to the website is easy – once you are a registered student you will be assigned your username and password you will then be able to login to the postgraduate site.

Students complete a selection of compulsory and elective courses in their various undergraduate programmes. We have provided course descriptions for all courses, except the counselling courses, in video format where the tutor personally sketches the important aspects of the courses. These descriptions will give the student an idea of the expectations of the tutors.

Message from the Principal: Text and Context

SATS is unashamedly Bible-based and unapologetically Christ centred. We are people of the book — although our ‘book’ is often electronic these days. Nevertheless, the text has always been front and centre for SATS. We love the Bible and we consider it our highest calling to ensure that our students read the Bible, know the Bible, and obey the Bible.

If you are considering enrolling at SATS but don’t wish to complete a full programme, you do have the option to purchase a single course which we call “Stand-alone” courses, the prices for which are as follows:

All courses include academic readers, which means that you don’t need to purchase textbooks.


Undergraduate Counselling courses = R2 164 per course
Undergraduate courses = R1 893 per course
Honours 12 credit courses = R2 387 per course
Honours 24 credit courses = R4 774 per course

Distance learning can be defined as learning which takes place remotely, and in our case, online.
