The Seminary welcomes students from other parts of the world to its degree and non-degree programs. Our purposes are to broaden cross-cultural perspective for ministry and prepare scholars and teachers to be leaders in theological education in their home countries. For the Seminary, the presence of international students enriches theological dialogue and mutual learning in the community. International students may be Anglican or from other churches.

Normally the first theological degree is received in one's home country, and General is ideal for further non-degree study or for a supplemental or advanced degree. Applications are made in the usual way, except that interviews may be conducted by telephone if necessary. Endorsement by the applicant's bishop or other relevant ecclesiastical authority is important.
