For the first time in its history, students and staff from our Faculty of Theology have been accepted to the Global Institute of Theology. Students Michelle van Tonder and Andrew Barnard and staff member Helené van Tonder from our Department of Church History are among only 50 students worldwide accepted on a two-yearly basis.

The purpose of the institute is to give theology students and faculties an opportunity to learn, teach and practise theology in an inter-contextual and ecumenical way, situating the theological task in local, regional and world contexts.
Prof. Francois Tolmie, Dean of our Theology Faculty said, “The faculty is very proud of its students and staff member. They came up against very stiff competition and were successful in the selection process. We know that they will do the university proud.”
