Introducing the Single Sign On

In the past, students had to login to our different electronic library holdings platforms (such as JStor, Ebscohost, DOAJ and Sabinet) using various usernames and passwords. Students can now sign in to all these resources using a Single Sign On (their MySats login details) in the Research Portal, which can be found under “Research Resources” in the Information Kiosk on MySats.

Besides journal articles and physical library holdings, SATS has 177,000 ebooks in its collection.

Crossroads and Beyond

Crossroads provides material for local churches to run an in-house discipleship and leadership training programme. The programme provides: ready-to-use lessons, comprehensive notes, student handouts, marketing material, administration tools and much more.

Crossroads is also, however, offered online. Students can study at their own pace, from wherever they can connect to the internet; even on mobile.
This is just a first step into studying the Bible in a more formal and structured way. Students who have completed a One-year Crossroads programme will receive 24 credits into the Higher Certificate in Christian Life programme.

Contact: crossroads@sats.edu.za to enquire about enrolling for the Higher Certificate programme.
