Admission Requirements

SVS welcomes applications from individuals who hold a Bachelor’s degree and exhibit a clear calling to Christian ministry, as affirmed by their local church or other Christian leaders based on their character and gifting. Prospective students should have been Christians for a minimum of three years (Titus 1:7, 1 Timothy 3:1-7) before considering enrollment. SVS does not discriminate on the basis of race, caste, name, or national origin.

Admission Recommendations

While proficiency in English is not mandatory, some understanding of the language is beneficial. Students needing assistance with English may have access to individual instruction. Additionally, potential SVS students should possess basic computer skills, including the ability to type in Hindi Unicode and manage a personal computer. Those lacking these skills may be encouraged to join Satya Vachan Church early to prepare for matriculation, although early preparation does not guarantee admission.
