Focus on your video and written essays and building a narrative that helps our team understand how the degree fits your goals for life and ministry.
The bulk of your online application will be in the form of timed written and video essays. In these essays we will ask you to look back on past achievements, struggles, and failures to learn more about your readiness for the program. We want to know that you will thrive in a community that values collaboration, consideration of others, self-awareness, and clear communication.
To prepare for the application, keep these helpful tips in mind:
- Relax. Applying to a school you really want to get into can be nerve-wracking. Remaining relaxed will help you put your best foot forward. Stay calm. Stay focused. Take a break when you need to. We hope you might even enjoy the experience.
- Start early. Relaxing is always difficult when deadlines sneak up on you. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to gather required items like references and transcripts. It’s a good idea to set your completed application aside for 1–2 days and review it with fresh eyes before submitting it as well.
- Be yourself. Westminster’s Online Learning team wants to get to know you - with all your quirkiness and character! Honesty is one of the most important qualities in the applications we review. We know no one is perfect and we hope by reviewing your application we get to know the real you.
Happy applying 😀
