STUDYING WITH EMMAUS

ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS AND AIMS

Emmaus courses are not designed to provide an academic qualification, their main aim is to encourage the diligent study of the Word of God. This will lead to a deeper spiritual maturity and a better equipping of the student for wider service for the Lord.

TIME LIMIT
 
The School places no actual time limit on the studies, allowing students to proceed at their own pace. We do, however, strongly recommend keeping to a regular schedule, for in this way the maximum benefit is attained.

EXAMINATIONS

Most examinations are based upon a multiple choice system. Included in the question papers are ‘WHAT DO YOU SAY?’ questions. These are not graded but are given in order that the students may express their personal views freely. A certificate is issued to students who achieve 60% or more for the course.

WAYS TO STUDY 

Courses may be studied in two ways: -

1. Individually - students study on their own and send their exam papers to the School for marking by Emmaus tutors.

2. In Groups - in Church, Home or Emmaus Centres under a competent leader responsible for marking and liaison with the School.

COST OF COURSES

At the present time and for the foreseeable future, we are offering Emmaus Courses FREE OF CHARGE on the understanding that students will complete the lessons and return them to the school for marking, after which the next FREE course, of the student's choice, will be sent.

ONLINE COURSES

We also offer FREE courses online. See 'Online Courses' for details.

STUDY PROGRAMMES

There are two schemes of study -                                                                     

1. The Individual Studies Programme. Students chose their own course, or courses, to study from the comprehensive list we have to offer.

2. The Series Study Programme. Students chose a group of courses which focus on a particuler theme, ie Bible Characters, Prophecy.   

UNIT CERTIFICATES

Every course has a Unit value of one unless indicated otherwise. This refers to its level of difficulty. Unit certificates are issued for the completion of 12 (or multiples of 12) Units. The first 12 Units must include the Bible Survey by James Catron.

ORDERING COURSES

THE FUTURE

We are continually looking to the Lord to direct and use the work of Emmaus for the spiritual blessing of many and for the glory of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

 

 1. THE INDIVIDUAL STUDIES PROGRAMME

Under this method students can choose their own courses from the whole range of courses. This means that they can construct their own programme according to their interests and requirements.
