What’s it like at Scottish College? A Student View

Susan Henderson:

"Before starting my training with the Scottish College I was a pupil support assistant in my local primary and secondary schools for 17 years.  At the same time, I was undertaking my TLS Foundation course."

"I am now into my third year of studies which sees me studying with the Scottish Episcopal Institute for a Diploma in Theology, alongside the College programme."

"The Scottish College offers flexibility through modular sessions which means I had the choice to stay in my hometown in the North of Scotland or to relocate to Glasgow for my training.  I chose to relocate to allow myself to be immersed in my studies. "

"The College is a place of reflection and learning that the staff and students lead, which has helped grow my confidence. It is a safe space to explore ideas before taking my learning out into my placements."

"Learning is for all at the College and we, as students, are often joined by ministers and lay people for some of our modules.  We also attend the annual Ministers’ Conference and the residential Synod meeting which is a wonderful way to develop community."
