Extramural study requires devotion and ongoing dedication. This is so much easier to sustain when you enjoy the process, like a favourite hobby, and when you don't feel alone. After nearly 20 years providing academic correspondence courses in theology, we have learned how to make home study more collegiate, more supportive and more successful for you.
That's why our distance tutors keep in contact with course participants during the whole course process... with ongoing help, comments and encouragement.
Residential Schools provide an opportunity for distance education students to meet face to face with other students, and to experience interactive learning. Students are encouraged to attend at least one Residential School in the course of their L.Th studies.
A number of subjects will be offered each year which will include a Residential School as a part of the course. The students attendance at, and contribution to, the Residential School will form part of the course assessment along with the normal reading and assignments.
The cost for Residential Schools (including accommodation) is met by EIDTS. Students will need to make their own arrangements for travel and meet the cost of that. Assistance towards these travel costs is available on application to the Academic Registrar. Applications need to be lodged with the Academic Registrar prior to registration.
Residential schools for 2013 will be held in Dunedin from 2pm on Monday January 21st until 1pm on Thursday January 24th. The venue will be Salmond College, 15 Knox Street.
