African Christian College and our Bachelor of Theology programme are both accredited and officially recognised for high quality education.
Higher education accreditation is a type of quality assurance process under which an academic institution is evaluated by an external body to determine if applicable standards are met. In many African countries this is done by governmental agencies and often not recognized by institutions outside that country. African Christian College is fully recognised by the Eswatini Higher Education Council, a division of the Eswatini Ministry of Education and Training.
Our Bachelor of Theology programme is currently fully accredited by the Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA), an independent and continent-wide council recognized globally for its high standards. As a fully-accredited programme, our BTh is recognised for high quality around the world. See documents below for verification.
Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA)
We have been officially working with the Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa since 2011 when we became affiliates. After submitting our application for accreditation in 2014, African Christian College earned candidacy status with ACTEA. The administration and staff of African Christian College worked diligently to complete the candidacy phase and was awarded fully accreditation for our Bachelor of Theology (BTh) programme in 2019. This accreditation is recognised until 2029.
ACTEA is a reputable, continent-wide accrediting body with high standards and a reputation for backing quality, theological education programmes. We are honoured to be accredited by ACTEA and believe this recognition reflects the quality of learning and transformation that we provide our students.
ESwatini Higher Education Council (ESHEC)
African Christian College was one of only 3 institutions of higher learning to receive full registration status by the Eswatini Higher Education Council in 2017. This occurred after applying in Dec 2016 and a on-site review by evaluators. ESHEC is the authorised division overseeing higher learning institutions of the Eswatini Ministry of Education and Training. This registration is valid from October 2017 until 30 September 2022. (Note, at the time of certification, Eswatini was known as Swaziland.)
