Quality assurance and recognition of the educational programs

TVSEMINARY makes provision for state-recognized diplomas through a partnership with other state-licensed evangelical schools.


TVSEMINARY has established a special partnership with Saint-Petersburg Christian University (SPbSU). SPbSU is registered as a religious educational organization – an evangelical theological college providing accredited higher education based on evangelical values. The University works under the license № 0009545 series 90Л01, reg. № 2477 of Nov. 18, 2016, issued by the Federal Educational and Scientific Supervision Service.

On the basis of this license SPbCU has the right to issue diplomas of higher education to its graduates. According to the current regulations, a diploma of higher education of the standard form has the same legal force as a state diploma of higher education.

How do our students benefit from a partnership with Saint-Petersburg Christian University (SPbCU)? In addition to the diploma granted by TVSEMINARY, each of our graduates can receive a state recognized diploma of higher education granted by SPbCU. The only additional requirement is to take a few training courses at SPbCU. For more specific information on this issue please write at: tvs.student@gmail.com.
