The year includes opportunities to engage in mission placement. Students work with the College to choose placements that relate to their particular interests or career objectives. Placements involve taking a reflective approach to Christian ministry, evidenced in the journalling and assessments required for this unit.
Students write a 6,000-word dissertation on a subject of particular interest to them. Students are assigned a supervisor and topics are subject to approval.
Teaching and assessment
In Level 6 there are more 20-credit units to choose from, allowing students to engage in greater depth with a subject. Units are assessed in a variety of ways: essays, presentations, portfolios, and even press releases and mock radio interviews. There is also an opportunity to do an independent study unit. For 10-credit units, written work of 3,000 words is required and marking is done anonymously.
