Everything you need to know about our upcoming SATS Master of Divinity Programme!

Spread the News! Come and have a look at our upcoming Master of Divinity Programme. The MDiv is a professional Master’s degree with a strong emphasis on Bible and ministry. Since it does not require a theological degree, it is ideal for second-career pastors—people who entered pastoral ministry after training for another career. Click HERE for more info:

Buying your courses and calculating the cost

To streamline our services to our students, SATS has recently made two significant changes:

  1. An online order form: You may now order anywhere between 1 and 4 courses for the coming term, directly from your profile in MySats, without having to contact SATS! Remember, if you order two or more courses at a time, you will enjoy a 10% discount on your course fees. *
  2. Electives on the go: Students no longer need to choose their electives in advance. Every term, a rotating selection of electives will be available for order. You may simply order whatever electives appeal to you. Once you have completed the requisite number of electives for a particular year, no more electives will be available for order.

* Discounts may differ for partnership students.
