International Students

International Students

Western Seminary seeks to not only develop ministry leaders in the United States, but also across the world. Many of our international student graduates have gone on to have significant ministries in their home countries and around the globe. We believe that training men and women for strategic ministry roles is not just an academic exercise, but one that matures the believer and ignites their passion for Jesus and their heart to serve the Church worldwide.

We enroll students who come to reside in the US as a traditional international student, those that come in and out of the US for modular classes, and now to students who can remain in their home country and ministry setting while studying fully online!

 Which option is best for you?

  • Campus International Student: You want to come to campus for an immersive educational experience or perhaps come in and out of the country for modular courses to remain in your ministry context. This would be the traditional route that involves obtaining the F1 visa, showing funding for school and living expenses, and studying full time.
  • Global International Student: You want to remain in your home country and/or ministry setting while studying in fully online (with both asynchronous and synchronous learning options) courses. You will not need to come to the US at all.
