The Discipleship Training School (DTS) including the field assignment is a prerequisite for all other UofN courses. The DTS is the gateway into the seven Colleges/Faculties and various Centres of the UofN. Students may apply to any DTS offered presently at more than 600 locations in over 160 countries and 97 languages around the world.
Once the student has completed the DTS, he or she may take advantage of the wide variety of courses the UofN offers. These courses are designed to equip the student to live and practice Christ’s last command to “make disciples of all nations….teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). A student does not need to be registered in a degree programme to take UofN courses for which he or she is qualified. Students may take schools in any of the various Colleges/Faculties and locations that best fit their ministry goals. To be admitted to a UofN course, an applicant must provide proof of the ability to do university-level coursework in the language in which the course is offered.
This approach to education offers students the flexibility to pursue those areas of study which are beneficial for reaching their life goals. Students are encouraged to be obedient to the call of God as they seek the equipping necessary to pursue their God-given ministries.
All UofN courses are given a special number preceded by a three letter designator which indicates the College/Faculty or Centre/Institute that offers the course. These letters are followed by a three-digit number which indicates the kind of course it is, within the College/Faculty or Centre.
