BA in Biblical Studies with Education

Point to Note:

As you may have already observed, this Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies has the option of including additional studies that involve a further emphasis in education. This additional emphasis in Education was intended to enlarge our students' potential for service in Christ's kingdom. This Education emphasis will qualify you as professional secondary school teacher and you will be legible to register as such with the ministry of Education & Sports.


    1. Character:

Students must give evidence through their written testimony of having had a genuine conversion experience involving repentance from sin and faith in Christ alone for salvation.  Applicants should have a sincere desire to study the Word of God, to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and to prepare themselves to serve Him in the fullest possible way.  Letters of recommendation are also required from the applicant’s pastor or other person of standing in the community who can evaluate the applicant’s character and testify to the vitality of the applicant’s Christian experience, moral character, and personal integrity.

              2. Academic Achievement:

The applicant’s past scholastic records and performance will be evaluated, along with ABU Entrance Examination scores.


All Ugandan applicants for admission to African Bible University must have successfully completed Senior 4, and have at least one of the following:

            a) at least two principal passes at 'A' level
            b) a relevant diploma from a recognized institution
            c) have passed the National Council for Higher Education's National Attainment Test for mature age entry.
  • Applicants from other countries need to have achieved the minimum academic requirements that would be necessary for them to attend an accredited University in their own country. 

    In addition, the prospective student must satisfactorily pass the African Bible University Entrance Examinations.


Formal application to African Bible University consists of the following:

1)  Submission of a completed application form, which may be obtained from the office of the Registrar.  The completed application form should include photocopies of all documents establishing qualifications and transcripts.

2)  Students who have submitted a satisfactory application and who have met the minimum academic requirements will be invited to sit for the African Bible University Entrance Examinations. 

3)  Prospective students who successfully compete the African Bible University Entrance Examinations may be called to the university for a personal oral interview with the Registrar or another designated faculty member before final selection is made.  At this time all original documents must be produced and photocopies verified.

4)  If the interview is satisfactory, the applicant will be asked to provide a health certificate from a qualified physician.  In addition, the applicant’s referees will be contacted to provide personal recommendations.

5)  After the candidate has been interviewed, and all necessary records, transcripts and references have been received, a decision will be made regarding the applicant.  Notification of acceptance or rejection will then be communicated to the applicant.



It is the desire of African Bible University that every qualified student who wishes to attend the university be able to do so.  In order to encourage this desire, the university makes every effort to keep the cost of tuition, accommodation and meals to a minimum.  Tuition and fees are set annually.  Current rates may be obtained by contacting the Office of the Registrar.  The fees paid by the student do not cover the entire cost of training the student.  Therefore, African Bible University is dependent upon gifts from Christian friends and churches to subsidize the cost of each student’s education.



Each year the university grants a limited number of scholarships in the form of work-study grants.  Work scholarship positions involve various responsibilities such as cleaning, farming, animal husbandry, grounds maintenance, and service in the library and computer lab.  Reimbursement for these support services to the university are applied directly to the student’s account to offset tuition charges through scholarship funds.  It is the policy of the university not to offer work scholarships to first year students.
