ACTEA Accredited Programmes

Last Revised: March 2013

ACTEA's services include academic accreditation of programmes of theological education, in order to stimulate the improvement and standardisation of such programmes, and in order to provide a sound basis for international academic recognition.

ACTEA's published accreditation standards and procedures apply a range of requirements in keeping with accepted international academic norms. This includes extensive self-study, and detailed on-site assessment by external examiners. Ongoing compliance is also strictly monitored.

ACTEA accredits programmes of theological education at post-graduate, post-secondary, and secondary levels. At post-secondary level, ACTEA accredits in two categories, the post-secondary Diploma category, and the university first-degree BTh level.

At present, the following programmes are accredited by ACTEA at the respective levels indicated.
