In order to be enrolled, one must present the following documents:
A letter of recommendation from the Religious or Diocesan Ordinary, indicating that the candidate has hitherto given proof that he possesses the necessary intellectual, moral and religious qualities.
The diploma or certificate of his secondary studies, which would permit the individual, in his own country, to be enrolled for university studies.
The diploma or certificate of his philosophical studies (compulsory for ordinary students).
Documents of any other theological studies he has completed elsewhere, describing the contents of the courses and the ECTS obtained for each subject. The Academic Council grants recognition of courses already completed, only in those cases where the results clearly show substantial equivalence in contents and ECTS, and are at university level.
The completed official form of enrolment, provided by the Secretary’s office, and two recently taken passport-size photos.
At the beginning of the academic year the Academic Council will examine this documentation and assess the academic standard of the new applicant to be enrolled on the basis of its merits.
To be enrolled as an ordinary student in this Studium Theologicum Salesianum, one must possesssufficient knowledge of English. In addition, some knowledge of Latin, as prescribed by the documents of the Church, is expected. At the beginning of the first year, the students will have to sit for an English test to verify their capacity to understand and express themselves correctly in English. The student, who does not possess the minimum necessary knowledge of English, is expected to attend a supplementary course of English.
