Undergraduate Evening School

Undergraduate Evening School

The Seminary operates an Evening School where the Bachelor of Ministry degree is Evening School offered. The classes and qualifications are the same in quality, content and level of study as that offered during the daytime and include preparation for the ministry in general, but also cover the studies required to fulfill the requirements for Baptist Union ministry recognition. Since the Bachelor of Theology includes a study of the biblical languages (Greek and Hebrew), the Seminary is only able to offer the Bachelor of Ministry (BMin) at this stage. The four-year BMin degree is offered over a period of five years. Other courses of study may be added in years to come.


Entrance Requirements:
The entrance requirement for the BMin is a matric (Grade 12) with conditional exemption (normally age 23 and older). The Seminary is able to give recognition for prior learning (referred to as RPL), based on a document submitted to the Department of Education. Any prior studies in theology will be evaluated for possible credit towards the BMin. The Seminary cannot give credit for more than 50% towards the completion of the BMin degree.
The Seminary is using its full-time faculty to teach some of the subjects, while it has access to many qualified and gifted part-time lecturers to teach in the Evening School. The Seminary is committed to maintain a high academic and spiritual standard for all of its programmes in order to prepare men and women for quality ministry.
Fees and Other Costs:
Tuition fees are the same as for the daytime students, based on a fee per subject.
Lecture Times:
Classes are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6.00pm to 9.30pm on campus. Each evening consists of one-and-a-half hour lecture time for one subject, 30 minutes break and another one-and-a-half hours of lecture time for the second subject.
Student Status
Evening students are regarded and treated as full-time students of the Seminary, with all the rights, privileges and responsibilities of a student. A student card is issued to registered students as proof of their student status. Please consult the “Rules and Regulations” for more details on some of the privileges and responsibilities of students.

Cape Town Baptist Seminary was previously known as The Baptist Theological College of South Africa, Cape Town. The name change took place in September 2001.
