The diploma is designed within a church internship.
If you would like to stay in your home church, you can do so by being involved in an internship. This consists of six core papers by block course plus a ministry internship in your local church or Christian organisation working 15 hours per week (Minimum 500 hours over the year).
In block courses you will receive quality teaching from our amazing lecturers, giving you in-depth biblical and theological understanding. You will also be developed in ministry skills such as preaching and leadership.
This course is a one-year intensive leadership development programme that has been designed for people who feel called to be involved in leadership roles in the workplace and in Christian ministry.
It is a full-time year of study, with an internship, that follows on from the NZ Diploma in Christian Studies (Level 5).
Having established a solid biblical and theological foundation in your earlier qualification, the NZ Diploma in Christian Studies (Level 6) now focuses intensely on growing in leadership knowledge and skills.
This one year NZ Diploma in Business (Level 5) is primarily delivered through online learning. Short block courses in a central location are arranged at specific times of the year. While attendance is not compulsory they are highly recommended, as students may be challenged in graduating without attending these due to some of the project or group work that is undertaken.
