Global University (GU), our awarding body, has a policy of continually revising and updating courses and admission requirements. This is also true for our home-grown programs. Therefore, programs we can withdraw, change or update classes as required. Therefore, before proceeding upon the website's contents, especially before applying, prospective students are advised to check the information by contacting us by writing to us using this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

International Students Verification
Since students with GIT would be coming from Pentecostal and Evangelical churches, a number of student verifications will be applied. These can include:•Prospective students need to provide a copy of a legal identity document, such passport or national ID card.•The pastor of the church will verify the identity of the students by a signed declaration.•A Skype (or similar software) meeting will take place between a GIT staff member to (1) verify the students likeness and (2) assess the language ability of the applicant.•The above are necessary before the prospective students send in their applications.This procedure will apply for students that are able to come to Malta to study, or studying by distance learning.
Modes of study in Malta.
Global Institute of Theology is a growing school. Therefore, we do not have the facilities the man power to hold full time classroom studies. However, since our courses are desisnged for distance and online learning, students that want to study in Malta need to know that they can study at their place of residence. However, for every one EQF/MQF credit, they will need to meet with a tutor for five hours. This is explained in the following table:In line with European tools, all education pegged to the MQF is quantified in worlaod hours known as “credits.” Workload can be defined to 25 hours of learning (consisting of a minimum of 5 hours of direct contact teaching hours; practical sessions; mentoring; self-study; such as reading, research, seminars, conferences, tutorials, assignments and assessments; and relatedorganzised activities, such as informal and non-formal learning). Thus both ECTS and ECVET are subject to the same quality standards and have equal value.
Students Overseas Earned Qualifications
A large number of overseas qualifications are accepted as satisfying the entry requirements to the GIT/GU. All original transcripts must be sent from the awarding body directly to GU or GIT. Some students may need to take courses to meet the entry criteria.
Language of instruction
The language of instruction GIT lectures in is English. Prospective students who have completed their secondary education overseas are obliged to satisfy the GIT/GU English language by writing a proficient essay so that the GIT director assesses the English.
Students are required to settle the balance for their tuition fees before the acceptance letter is sent. However, we only charge for the first module and the application fee.

Global Institute of Theology is a student centered institution. In fact, one of internal quality assurance standards requires that we do not show partiality to any student regarding race, color, and religion among other things. Consequently, concerning the educational requirements of students studying with GIT, students are not under the jurisdiction of any church or denomination, nor does GIT apply any admission requirements related to religious affiliation or creed. Global University’s faculty appoints mentors, graders, to the course of studies of their students. In some cases, the students choose their mentors according to their program prospectus.
Students, with no partiality, are to present with their application identification papers, such as copies of passports or Identity cards. This is important for GIT to have evidence that students are identified according to legal documents. GIT is a distance learning institution. Consequently, whether students are local or international, we will need to be assured that students enrolled with GIT are the same taking exams. It is a way of how the proctors can verify the identity of the student. Furthermore, will be able to meet the standards of the NCFHE our accreditation body.See Student Application Procedures
