The student body is made up of people with a range of life journeys and vocational aspirations. The span of student ages, backgrounds and experiences contributes to the rich dynamic of the supportive communal life of Scottish Baptist College. The shared passion of SBC students is the desire to develop Christian faith and practice in a supportive learning environment.

Some students choose modular study for personal interest and development. Others take the full programme to pursue vocational aspirations in Christian ministry and mission.

Some students come to SBC straight from school and others later after pursuing other studies or careers. Modular and part time options mean that some continue to work in Church activity or in other work while developing their theological education.

Among recent students we have welcomed church leaders refreshing or enhancing their learning, retired people involved in local church leadership, and those working towards a full degree and career change.
