Why Study at the College of Transfiguration?

The College of Transfiguration is the only residential seminary that offers training and formation for Anglican clergy in Southern Africa. The College is an engaged community of staff, students, administrators and grounds staff working in close proximity with a shared vision and mission. The challenges of working in a culturally diverse community of ordained and non-ordained students and staff which includes all races and genders is probably the most enriching learning experience that students can encounter to preparing for ministry beyond the College and for the realities of 21st century Southern Africa. 
 
Many of the learning experiences include digitization and academic literacy which is gained through student support and learning. Studying at the College of Transfiguration is not incidental to getting a qualification but rather an essential part of the process of empowering our student ministers to help facilitate communities of faith, contribute to social change and social cohesion, and enable a truly transforming humanity. 
 
We have a proud history of interaction with the wider Grahamstown and Anglican communities and have a Pastoral Placement Programme through which our students become actively engaged in the wider community.
