At Pathways, we believe Bible College isn’t just about shaping the mind; it’s about shaping the heart and hands as well. That’s why we offer an NZQA-accredited qualification (Level 5 internship) and Online and OnDemand courses (non NZQA) that make top-quality Biblical and Theological study practical and liveable. 

Want to apply to study at Pathways College?

We want to make the process of becoming a Pathways College student as easy as possible. Once you know what course you want to study, please take the time to apply through our online forms.

From early 2018 we have been offering subscription plans through Pathways College On Demand which will enable church groups to access our online course videos and use these in a variety of group contexts, such as life groups or Bible study groups, or even for one on one mentoring.


Studying at Pathways will help you become more and more like Christ, and way more useful to Him. 

Our key focus is true discipleship. You will see this through the combination of 50% academic study and 50% ministry in all of the courses.

We put an emphasis on you having several mentors throughout your study. You will have ongoing access to great pastoral care offered by the college.
