Grad.Dip Transformational Development

Entry requirements

Applicants for the GDTD need to meet these prerequisites:

  • At least 3 years experience in development work or missions.
  • Successful completion of a Bachelor level degree or equivalent.
  • Competencies acquired through other life experiences and secular qualifications will be considered too.
  • English language proficiency: at least IELTS 6.0 or TOEFL 550 (Computer-based score 213; Internet-based score 80).
  • Be commended for the GDTD program by two reputable leaders (at least one Christian leader) who know you professionally, academically and personally.


Normally, students will be accepted into the GDTD program 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 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.
