Entry Requirements

Applicants for the EdD need to meet these prerequisites:

  • A first theological degree of a suitable academic level (usually MDiv or its equivalent).
  • English language proficiency: at least IELTS 6.0 or TOEFL 550 (Computer-based score 213; Internet-based score 80).
  • In a significant leadership/training position in an organisation where enhanced perspectives in Christian education, spiritual formation and discipleship play a substantial role. Generally, we expect applicants to have had a minimum of three years such experience.

Secular qualifications in education/management will be a bonus.

Participants may live in countries other than those represented by AGST Alliance.


Normally students will be accepted into AGST Alliance programs on the basis of the stated prerequisite qualifications.

However, applicants who do not meet the stated entry requirements may be considered for this program if their general education, scholarship, training and experience are deemed suitable, and if they are deemed as well qualified as those who are able to satisfy the normal entrance requirements.

Applications based on equivalency will be considered on a case-by-case basis, taking into account a portfolio of work/ministry experience, publications and other relevant factors.
