Friday will mark the end of this semester’s study period for staff and students of Edinburgh Theological Seminary (ETS). Exams are due to commence on the 28th April through to the 9th May.
The academic year at the seminary is divided into two halves; the first semester runs from September to December, while the second semester runs from January to May with a closing ceremony on 12th May.
Students study various subjects throughout the year at ETS such as Systematic Theology, Church History as well as Hebrew and Greek languages. They are continually assessed throughout the year through essay writing and class tests culminating in final exams.
The last few months have been busy for students especially those who are looking to graduate this summer. Chair of Systematic Theology at ETS, Bob Akroyd, commented, “Exam time can be a stressful period for our students and we try to support them as much as we can. They’ve worked extremely hard and we all want them to do well.”
Please pray for the staff and students of ETS over the exam period and continue to remember all the work being planned in the Seminary for short and long-term goals.
Classes will resume on the 6th of September following the summer break.
