Application criteria

Read carefully


Applicants for TBBMI must turn 18 years old during the admission year.



Due to the practical profile of the school and the values at the ministry sites, active Christian ministry experience is required. Active Christian ministry means that you have had leadership or practical tasks in a Christian church or organization during the last three years.

This needs to be documented by your leader or pastor, by filling digitally our Practice Documentation form.


The school has continuous intake until the first school day. If there are still available spots in the school by then, the intake will continue until September 28th during the year of the intake. We have the capacity of taking in 94 students after this rule.

Maximum 10 percent of the school’s accepted number, which means 11 people, can be citizens from countries outside the EEA. This limit is only for citizens that have a residence permit for studies. For this group the school has a main intake on January the 10th.
