Southern Africa Bible College Admission Requirements

NOTE: Any admission requirement can only be waived under exceptional circumstances.

  2. The cost for foreign applications is higher than for local ones since the College has to pay high bank charges for foreign deposits. Therefore the admission fee is higher for students who pay in a foreign currency.
  3. An annual registration fee of R1600 (subject to adjustment without prior notice) is payable upon arrival at the College at the beginning of the academic year.
  4. A refundable maintenance / key deposit of R600.00 is payable by dormitory students upon arrival at the College.

  3. No foreign candidate will be accepted without a valid study permit. Students whose study permits expire during the cause of their studies must renew these before the expiry date.
