Our full-time students say . . .
“While I started as a part-time student and that certainly has its benefits, the full-time study experience has been truly enriching and a formative time in my life, from the privilege of being able to study God’s Word full-time to getting to know the staff and students and form lifelong friendships. – FT Student, Stephen Tan“

“Hail the Christ, My name is Seema Shrestha and I am from Nepal.Studying as a full time student was a big challenge for me being a mother of two young children, a pastor’s wife, work commitments and also with non theological study background. But the support, care, guidance, encouragement, prayers of the entire Christ College team made it possible. The lecturers, principal, staff and even the students were very much supportive. The library, study materials and methods, the course design are all very practical. If you have chosen to Study in Christ, you have made the right decision. – FT Student, Seema Shrestha“
