New Stream in Christian Counselling

From 1st February 2020, SATS will introduce a new option for the BTh programme, which focuses on Christian counselling. Students who choose to do the BTh with the focus on Christian Counselling will take 60% of their courses in theology and 40% in Christian counselling. Upon Completion, they will be able to register as Intermediate Religious Professionals in Christian Pastoral Counselling with the Council for Pastoral and Spiritual Counsellors.

Contact Jane (jane@sats.edu.za) for more information on this new programme option.

Pricing for SATS Courses from 2020

SATS will be introducing a completely new pricing structure from 1st January 2020. Based on the many requests we receive from students who struggle to pay for two courses at a time, you will in future be able to buy one course at a time. To remain active and motivated in your studies you do need to complete a minimum of one course per term.

  • Students will now be able to purchase one course at a time.
  • Students will only be able to buy course(s) for the next term starting after the date of payment.
  • Students who buy two or more courses at a time (i.e. per invoice) qualify for a 10% discount per course.

The new pricing for 2020 is explained in the infographic below:

Changing How You Apply for RPL

Historically, applicants were required to apply for RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) at the same time they applied for their studies. This is now a separate process, which means that new students can enrol for their study programme and begin working immediately. The new RPL process is explained in the infographic below:

Changes to the BTh Honours Courses
