ABOUT OUR CAMPUS Our close-knit community, with its friendly and supportive environment, will ensure that you thrive at Newbold. 08


C

lose to major centres and airports, Newbold is an ideal environment for studying, travelling and taking time out to relax. Our campus is conveniently located in the village of Binfield, a short bus ride or walk from the nearest town, Bracknell, an hour from London, and half an hour from Heathrow Airport.

Our campus

Our campus features male and female Halls of Residence, teaching buildings, and the Roy Graham Library, arranged around a central grassy court. Moor Close, our historic Jacobethan house built in 1881, is home to our Cafeteria and some residences, and is a popular venue for events.

Cafeteria and library

Newbold’s Cafeteria serves a variety of nutritious vegetarian meals, while the Roy Graham Library provides a wide range of reference materials, an interlibrary loan service, ongoing acquisitions of the latest titles and ample space for quiet study.

09


Accommodation

Most of our students live in our Halls of Residence, which are just a minute or two’s walk from the Cafeteria, main teaching buildings, our recently upgraded sports hall, and the library. Our family housing complex of one- to three-bedroom flats is just on the other side of the sports field.

Newbold Church

The College is co-located with Newbold Church, with three main services run on campus each Sabbath in addition to the spiritual programmes and activities that are offered throughout the week.

University Year in England, United States

The UNYE programme is a fantastic course to take. I have been able to choose from an extremely diverse selection of modules and select the path that suits my interests. Studying in the UK is an amazing experience. I am able to study in and around the historical places I am learning about — it is a truly immersive educational environment. Being surrounded by so many cultures has also broadened my worldview and I can see myself becoming the person I want to be here. The UNYE programme has been the first step in a lifelong adventure. It has helped me define what career I want to pursue and has given me so many opportunities to learn and experience new things. This year has been an amazing foundation for all my learning to come and has helped develop me in so many ways.

A Christian campus

SPIRITUALITY At Newbold we want to meet you where you are, spiritually. There is a range of spiritual programmes and opportunities on campus for all tastes and styles of worship, which we hope will enable your relationship with God to grow deeper and will guide you on your journey with Him.

12

Because Newbold is an Adventist institution, spirituality is integral to all our activities and we consider it as important as the academic education you will receive with us. We set time aside every day for worship, meditation and fellowship, and place special spiritual emphasis on the Sabbath. You will benefit from studying with other students for whom spirituality is also a priority and who will support you in your faith, and through the way Christ is naturally present in everything we do – from classwork to staff meetings, and church services on the Sabbath to spontaneous prayer in the corridor.

Study, discuss, explore, expand

Our Chaplain and the Campus Ministries are the hub of spirituality on campus, whether you are looking for spiritual encouragement or oneon-one Bible studies, or you would like to get involved with any one of our range of worship programmes and events. If you have a passion to serve, our Campus Ministries team will find a way to use your gifts.


There are a variety of small groups who meet to pray and study the Bible. A group meets weekly to combine prayer and exercise, and members of our Prayer Ministries team take prayer requests at any time – no prayer is unimportant. The Experience is one of our most popular and longest-running worship experiences. This student-led evening programme focuses on fellowship, Jesus and community. Our Friday evening vespers programme offers music, sermons and the chance to develop a deep relationship with the Lord through prayer and reflection. Newbold highly values service to others, whether those within the Newbold family, members of the wider Adventist Church, or those in the community. Through Newbold on the Road, our students travel to churches throughout the British Union Conference to take the divine service, preach, and share their testimony and music. Our homeless ministry is an opportunity to engage in service to the homeless community, while mission trips offer the chance to experience another culture while sharing God’s love and serving others.

Church services and Sabbath School

With a variety of Sabbath worship styles and opportunities, you are certain to find one that suits you. Newbold Church offers a Family Service and a Contemporary Service, as well as several language-specific services. Sabbath School classes are held at the same time in various locations around the College, and our Campus Ministries team runs a Sabbath School class especially designed for students.

Newbold provides a lot of opportunities and spaces to grow spiritually. Being part of the Newbold community really grounds you and reminds you about the reason the College is here and why Adventist education is so important.

n active social life is a big part of being a student, and at Newbold you can shape your own experience by deciding what clubs, societies or activities to become involved in.

Social activities

STUDENT LIFE Your friendships and the social life on campus will make up some of your best experiences at Newbold.

Beginning in Induction Week at the beginning of the academic year (September), there are a range of trips, events and other social activities that you can participate in depending on your level of interest. You can become part of our Campus Ministries team and help run our student-led spiritual and social programmes, get involved in organising musical events and shows, join one of our sports teams, or even run for office in the Newbold Student Association (NSA) and help shape the student social calendar for the year.


Campus Ministries

There is a spiritual programme available every day of the week, and through this our Campus Ministries team aims to meet you wherever you are on your spiritual journey. From Bible studies and worship programmes to small groups and vespers, take advantage of the many formal and casual opportunities to share, deepen and explore your faith and spirituality with your friends. If you feel called to make a difference in the lives of others, especially the homeless, then you might also like to get involved with Newbold’s homeless ministry.

Newbold Student Association (NSA)

Run by students, the NSA gives you a voice at Newbold. It is a communication channel between students, staff and external organisations. The NSA organises a variety of trips and social events, and membership is free to all students.

Clubs and societies

There are several student support and special-interest societies that you can join, or you may like to initiate your own club or society. Our current societies support and mentor students, are focused on academic areas to enhance your studies and academic experience, and exist to give you a way to develop your extracurricular interests with like-minded students.

Other societies and associations

The Newbold Ministerial Society and the Newbold Business Student Society also exist to support students within their own study areas, through careers advice and networking and other disciplinespecific support.

Some of my best memories are of spending time on campus with my friends. Newbold is a great place – there are lots of people who want you to succeed and have an awesome experience. Christina

These placements allow you to experience, report and reflect on areas such as pastoral ministry, psychology in ministry, and pastoral evangelism and discipleship.

BUSINESS AND HUMANITIES

Blending theoretical and practical learning is ingrained in our teaching. Our lecturers use a combination of classroom learning and practical and experiential methods that will leave you with an educational experience that is valuable in the job market. Field trips and other opportunities to learn outside the classroom, as well as our partnerships with career advice agencies, will reinforce your skills and knowledge. We actively encourage and support the completion of work experience or internships during your studies. Our Business Connect Programme exposes our Business students to the business world through lectures and networking interactions with business professionals and alumni. The programme can also help you to find work experience through internships.

You may also like to discover and learn more about the Bible one-on-one with our Chaplain, and these studies can help support you spiritually and increase your biblical knowledge.

It provides vital support for students, academic staff and researchers.

to you in the Library, which is open throughout the day and available to students in the evenings and on Sundays (times may change and will be communicated to students in advance). Personal study spaces can also be reserved, although priority is given to postgraduate students. Collaborative group study spaces are also available. The Library hosts the Ellen G. White Research Centre, the first of its kind established outside the United States. The Centre provides the facilities and resources for research into the life and writings of Ellen G. White and the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Centre holds, for example, a complete collection of Ellen G. White’s published and unpublished letters and manuscripts, consisting of approximately 50,000 pages. A card index enables researchers to find material easily, although all material is now available online.

LIFE AND STUDIES IN THE UK We are a diverse learning community and can help you make the UK your home – socially and academically.

34

1


Life in the UK

If you don’t already live in the UK, then the prospect of moving countries might seem daunting. Our campus is home to students and staff from around 60 nationalities, many of whom have now made Newbold their home. Whether you need to register with the local doctor’s surgery, are worried about learning the currency or need help adjusting to the type of English spoken in the UK, we will help you make any practical, logistical, social or academic adjustments so that you can settle in to life in the UK. This leaves you free to use your time at Newbold to develop the skills, outlook and confidence you need to fulfil your potential.

Studies in the UK

Academic life in the UK might be different to the way you are used to studying. Higher education in the UK tends to focus more on independent study time, student discussion and in-depth research, and less on classroom tests and assessment than you might be

used to. For example, many of our modules comprise a seminar several hours long and the equivalent number of hours of independent study and research. With the support of your lecturers and tutors and our learning support staff, we will provide you with encouragement and guidance to help you through your degree course or programme.

Coming to Newbold was like a whole other world, and I don't just mean culturally. The schooling and academics were quite different to school in the US, and understanding these differences beforehand helps. Gareth

Patrycja NIEWOLIK

BS Business Studies, Poland

When i started studying Business at Newbold, one of the very first things I received was guidance in devising a career pathway. It was a great start and is a proactive way of helping students think about their options for the future. Along with this fantastic preparation, I was able to achieve what I had deemed unachievable for a first-year student — I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to undertake a one-year internship at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). I look forward to finalising my studies at Newbold, and I believe that the knowledge I gained during my internship will only enhance my further learning experiences, and help enhance my career opportunities.

YEAR ONE

CORE MODULES

Year One is the entry point for those completing the course in three years.

This course covers subjects in three disciplines: • Biblical Studies • Theological Studies • Practical Theology

The focus of Year One will be narrowed more to the realm of religion and its relations to the history of thought, contemporary culture and society, and personal experience of spirituality and faith. You will be exposed to a variety of ideas from philosophy, sociology, biblical studies and biblical spirituality. At the same time, you will be able to explore, compare and evaluate these ideas from a biblical perspective. YEAR TWO

In Year Two you will start exploring issues related to biblical theology and ethics. Modules such as Prophetic Writings of the Old Testament and Acts and Epistles will provide insight into the exciting world of the prophets and the early Christian church. YEAR THREE

Your final year of study will focus more on research. Six credits of this final year will be taken as a research project in addition to your other modules.

56

Biblical Studies modules, such as Acts and Epistles, seek to enable you to understand and interpret biblical texts within their historical, socio-cultural and literary contexts. Theological Studies modules encourage you to consider a variety of important issues raised by the Biblical texts, such as the concept and nature of God. You will first learn how Christians in previous eras dealt with the issues in question before going on to formulate and defend your own positions. Practical Theology modules seek to develop your ability to apply the results of biblical and theological reflection in your own life, church and community.

Newbold has an excellent record of preparing employable Theology graduates and we maintain close relationships with the Church’s Ministerial Advisory Committee. Because the programme allows you to become specialised in particular areas of theological study, the Master of Arts in Theology enables a wider range of employment opportunities than other similar degrees. By specialising in one of our pathways you will be well prepared for entering into teaching ministry (particularly at primary or secondary level) or academia, particularly in theological writing, research or publishing. If you are interested in a career in counselling, then our Pastoral Studies pathway will prepare you well for this.


Entry requirements The Systematic Theology pathway will provide opportunities for you to master the ability to think theologically and to ‘do’ theology in a critical, reflective and creative manner. You will engage in a rigorous application of the methods and principles unique to the disciplines of biblical and systematic theology. You will examine complex historical theological systems and learn to constructively respond to them. The Systematic Theology pathway is designed to encourage in-depth research of the leading motifs of Adventist Christianity within the context of the wider Christian and philosophical traditions.

Course outcomes

The Postgraduate Certificate in Ministry and Mission will provide you with a deeper and more diverse insight into models of mission and evangelism, help you understand and practice a wider spectrum of preaching styles and analyse and process current issues in society and the Church. You will engage in a deep, critical analysis of the concepts, theories, assumptions and practices of missional ministry, and learn to respond innovatively and constructively to the complex questions and problems posed by current developments in the field. The Certificate will further prepare you for the next stage of your career, be that further education or one of many areas of employment. As a graduate, and in combination with the Master of Arts in Theology (or equivalent), you will be eligible to enter into pastoral ministry within the TED. This programme is also ideal for those such as elders, lay missionaries and others who have undertaken previous studies in theology and would like to upgrade their skills or increase their knowledge base to apply either in their current work or ministry, or to improve their employment opportunities within the Church.

Caroline Lacoma

BA Biblical and Pastoral Studies, Guadeloupe

I have always wanted to expand my knowledge and views on different biblical narratives and the context in which they were written. The Biblical and Pastoral Studies course at Newbold seemed to be an excellent way to do this. M y time in the UK has been a constant growing experience. I arrived in the UK when I was 20, having never lived abroad before. I spent a year in Newbold’s English Language Centre and am one year into my undergraduate studies. In the two years that I have been here I have met a myriad of people from different cultures and have had the opportunity to learn more about myself and about the world. I believe that my studies at Newbold and the time I have spent living abroad will have prepared me for ministry, and shaped me into a woman who is more experienced, and ready to face the challenges of the years ahead.

About the programme

What you will study

T

he Year in Mission and Service programme is divided into two parts: 1. Preparation and training in the form of four modules taught on the Newbold campus during the Autumn Semester; and 2. Practice, as you undertake a project with: a. the Trans-European Division (TED) b. the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in the UK and Europe c. Adventist Frontier Missions.


Modules

The following modules are offered in the Autumn Semester. Please note that these modules are not worth academic credit and cannot be transferred to any other degree course or programme. You may choose to complete these modules for credit, and standard fees will apply (see our fee information on page 24). · MISSION AND VOLUNTEERISM promotes

personal development through understanding cultural diversity and deepens spiritual insight and self-awareness with studies in altruism and compassion. · PREPARATION FOR MISSION SERVICE

introduces the fields of cultural anthropology and the sociology of religion, focusing on cross-cultural communication and contextualisation. · MINISTRY AND CULTURE examines principles

of sociology and cultural anthropology, cross-cultural communication, ministry in cultural diversty, and contemporary cultural issues. · CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY introduces the

basic theory, approaches and application of cultural anthropology and an appreciation of the complex nature of all cultures. In addition, six seminars/workshops are delivered by personnel from ADRA-UK on topics such as International Development and Urban Ministries. Further workshops/seminars are delivered by personnel from the TED and include sessions on Christian Apologetics, Youth Alive projects, mentoring and relationships.

Course outcomes

Through the Year in Mission and Service you will have the opportunity to progress your personal development and deepen your spiritual insight and self-awareness as you enhance your understanding of cultural diversity and missiology, altruism and compassion. You will gain a deeper understanding of the issues faced by different cultures interacting in a ministerial context, and how to appreciate the complex nature of cultural diversity. These studies will prepare you for mission work in the field, and the skills you acquire will enable you to manage projects sensitively in multicultural settings, communicate effectively within cultures other than your own, and to identify appropriate responses to well-defined and abstract problems within the mission project.

Fees and funding

AN ALL-INCLUSIVE price of £1,999 covers tuition, shared accommodation, and meals for the first semester. No Newbold fees apply for the second semester; however, there may be costs associated with your chosen mission project and these will be arranged between you and the organisation that manages your project. SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS The Trans-European Division subsidises 100% of the fees (tuition, meals and shared accommodation) for students under 30 years of age who go on to complete their mission projects with the TED.

I came to Newbold as opposed to any of the other schools [in the ACA catalogue] because it's one of the few where you don't have to learn a foreign language. Newbold was a great base from which to travel, and I got to see many parts of Europe that I wouldn't have seen if I'd stayed in the US. It's such a different feeling to see something that's a thousand years old in England, to something that's a hundred years old in the US! Gareth

BS Business Studies, Hungary

As part of our BS Business Studies, Newbold encourages us to undertake an internship so that we are able to start putting what we learn into practice. I was pleased to be offered an internship at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and looked forward to this new adventure with great anticipation. Corporate life is much more complex than textbooks made it seem, but there was one important thing my studies at Newbold had prepared me for: a positive attitude towards work.

Interning at a Fortune 500 company provided me with many tricks and tips that I couldn’t have learnt from a textbook. I have learnt how to work within a power hierarchy, and how to interact with peers and managers, while working on witty ways to make myself known to the people at the top of the company pyramid.It’s been an eyeopening experience to say the least!

I came to Newbold to improve my English, but without a concrete plan for my future. Not only did my English improve significantly, but the ELC teachers encouraged me to take some Business classes, something I'd always wanted to do. I am now studying Business full time and am grateful for the support of my English teachers and to God for leading me to Newbold.

I had an amazing experience studying English at Newbold. The classes were both interesting and fun, and I learned so much. The teachers had time for every single student and gave us all the help we needed. Ade ELC

Certificate of Completion and an improved grasp of the English language.

What you will study

W

hen you arrive for the Summer course, your English will be assessed and you will be placed in a class that is appropriate to your level. OUR SUMMER SCHOOL in English is an

immersion programme that helps you to put theoretical knowledge into practice in a combination of classroom activities and everyday situations. Through our programme of educational trips and social events we will encourage you to not only understand English, but to communicate actively and creatively.


Modules

Whether you join us for the General English Course during semester time, or for our Summer School, your learning will be divided into the following modules:

Classes

We offer fifteen one-hour classes per week, studying in a small group with other students (usually around twelve to twenty people) and organised according to the English levels, from elementary to advanced. The classes are communicative, interactive, and engaging, and focus on general English grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing, speaking and listening, and pronunciation. Classes are held in the morning and early afternoon, with social activities and trips most afternoons and evenings, and on weekends. You will continue to practise your English while participating in sports events, games, concerts, competitions, and worship sessions.

English Language Reading and Writing Speaking and Listening British Culture Creative Communication Tutorials Individual Study Time

The content of modules is adapted to your level of English to best support your learning. ENGLISH LANGUAGE (7 HOURS/WEEK)

These classes focus on improving your understanding and command of English vocabulary, structure and grammar. They also address the four skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening. SPEAKING AND LISTENING (3 HOURS/WEEK)

These classes develop your oral communication skills through listening assignments, conversation tasks, and presentations. BRITISH CULTURE (1 HOUR/WEEK)

Peek into the past and present realities of life in the UK as you put into practice what you’ve learned in language classes.

These classes focus your comprehension and composition skills, and provide opportunities to address different texts and practise various forms of writing. CREATIVE COMMUNICATION (1 HOUR/WEEK)

You will be challenged to practise your English and develop your general communication skills through different creative group projects, ranging from visual arts and video, to drama and cooking. You will work together with students of different English ability levels and learn through teamwork, intercultural communication, critical and creative thinking. TUTORIALS

As your teachers want to provide the best environment to help you learn and develop, they will also arrange for some one-to-one meetings with you to discuss your progress and provide help where you most need it. INDIVIDUAL STUDY TIME

If you want to improve your language skills significantly, just working along in class is not enough. This means that you are expected to set aside some time for independent work outside the classroom – completing your homework assignments, revising what has been covered in class, and taking time to practise. 109

CAREERS ADVISORS, YOUTH LEADERS AND PASTORS We are passionate about providing an Adventist educational experience and want to equip you with information to share with your students and youth to help them make the best decisions about their education, their faith and their future. 111


Theoretical, practical and spiritual learning

An Adventist educational environment

Studying in an Adventist environment and learning in an Adventist context is invaluable. As an Adventist institution, spirituality is integral to everything we do, and with a variety of worship and ministry opportunities available every week, we consider it as important as the academic education we offer our students. Our students benefit from studying with peers for whom spirituality is also a priority, by learning from staff who have their personal development at heart, and through the way Christ is naturally included in everything we do.

The most important thing for me is being able to travel and learn about different cultures, and further my education and my spiritual walk at the same time. Newbold is one of the few places where you can do that. Gareth

Our staff are at the forefront of emerging trends and new understandings of the topics they teach. Our students learn not just theoretical and practical lessons, but to understand how other people view the world and how to connect with people who have different mindsets and different worldviews. The combination of classroom theory and practice through placement, work experience, internship opportunities, and learning in context in the field makes our graduates attractive to employers. Our students leave us with real-world experience, and having been exposed to the way churches and organisations run. Our students receive not only a theoretical education, but spiritual learning as well. Through our classes, Bible studies, and Campus Ministry events, we encourage students to engage with faith, religion and the Bible, and we send them into the world with an understanding of how to stand up for their faith and beliefs and how to appropriately argue the case for Christianity and Adventism.

Financially attractive

Because we believe that Adventist education should be available to everyone, our fees are competitively priced, with a year of undergraduate tuition costing around 20% less than the UK average* – and thanks to our payment plans and processes, our graduates don’t leave us with a hefty education debt. Newbold has a range of scholarships, grants, and bursaries available – from general to programme-specific, there are options for almost everybody. In addition to the formal funding opportunities available, our Continue the Journey fund offers a financial incentive for students who come on one of our short courses and progress to a full degree, and our Student Hardship Fund provides support for students who are struggling with their personal circumstances. Contact our Admissions office for more information on the funding support we might be able to suggest for your youth:

Working with you

Our recruitment and marketing staff are keen to work with you to meet the educational needs of your youth. We run personalised on-campus visit programmes to help potential students make their decision, and Newbold representatives regularly attend major youth events around the UK, Europe, the US and South America. Our Newbold on the Road ministry takes Newbold students to churches around the British Union Conference to share their gifts and their testimony. We are happy to work with you in any relevant and appropriate ways to meet potential students where they are and with what they need to progress with their education. We are passionate about Adventist education as a ministry and are always looking for new opportunities to make this available to others.

Visit us

We offer a popular campus visit programme to support potential students in their decision-making process. Our free visit includes two nights of accommodation in our

Halls of Residence and meals in our cafeteria, with opportunities for visitors to attend classes in their areas of interest and to meet other students who are already studying these topics, to meet our administrative staff and ask them questions about admission and finance, and to join in with life and activities on campus. Plus, students who come on an individual visit and who go on to enrol at Newbold are eligible to receive up to £150 of their visit travel expenses back. Our free visit also extends to groups, and we are happy to tailor a programme to your needs. We encourage students to visit during the semester (January–May, September–December) to make the most of their time at Newbold. Other terms and conditions also apply, and can be found at:
