SBC helps people prepare for Christian living and service in the contemporary context. It offers a supportive environment with dedicated staff. It is a context in which people can faithfully and creatively develop their Christian faith and practice.
Located on the Paisley campus of the University of the West of Scotland students access the full range of University resources and support while being part of a smaller intentional learning community.
“When describing us, our students use the language of ‘family’ and ‘community’.”
Students take individual modules or follow through programmes to certificate, diploma, and degree level. Full time or part time study is possible. Through the courses offered and our general College life we seek to hold together: academic excellence, practical training and personal spiritual development.
While we have strong links with the Baptist Union of Scotland and the majority of students at the College come from a Baptist background we also have, welcome, and accept students from other backgrounds.
Students and staff share a common room space for breaks and lunch. This contributes to the strong collegiate ethos to our College. External observers praise the ‘student facing’ nature of our College; our students use the language of ‘family’ and ‘community’.
You are invited to contact the College to find out more information or to arrange a visit and a meeting with a member of staff who will be happy to discuss your particular needs and aspirations.
During my time at SBC I’ve been challenged in numerous ways, all of it for the better. Knowing that God had brought me to SBC I wasn’t really sure what I had gotten myself into, but each class stretched me and helped to develop me and it has given me an amazing start in this journey that I am on with God.
The course was both difficult and thought provoking but I loved it. The support I received from both the staff and students at SBC was above and beyond anything I could have imagined.
I am sad not to be returning in September, but I know that once a student at SBC, you are never forgotten about.
