Admissions & Aid

International Applicants

Virginia Theological Seminary has a rich tradition of inviting qualified students from all parts of the Anglican Communion to participate in its graduate level academic programs and the life of the community. Applicants from other countries are considered for admission based on a number of criteria, including:
  • Proven academic ability
  • Current work in ministry
  • The potential for contributing to transformative educational or ministerial programs in their home context
  • The potential to contribute to the cross-cultural understanding of their fellow students at Virginia Theological Seminary by sharing their own stories and contexts for ministry.
While all qualified persons are invited to apply, first consideration is given to those applicants from dioceses and institutions in the Anglican Communion with which Virginia Theological Seminary has historical ongoing partnership relationships.
