All new students are required to attend an orientation programme at the start of the academic year. The programme, which is jointly organized by the Faculty and Student Council, aims to acquaint students with various aspects of College life, community living and expectations and requirement of a theological student.

Residing on Campus

All single BD/ MDiv students are strongly encouraged to live on campus for at least two semesters to experience life in the community, unless accommodation is not available. Learning to live together with others from different countries, cultures and Christian traditions is a valuable aspect of the training for ministry. College life will be more complete when one has lived in one of the Four Halls of Residence.

Through TTC, I have fostered authentic friendships across denominations and learnt to appreciate the kingdom of God from a wider perspective. TTC has shaped my theological and biblical worldview, and helped me to bridge theology and personal and ministerial growth.

I came to TTC expecting a rich theological education. Academically, I certainly found what I was looking for – and so much more. Unexpectedly, I found a community that has blessed and taught me beyond anything I could ask for or hope to repay, and without which my education would be incomplete.
