Mid-year Student Orientation 2023


EAST Mid-year Student Orientation, January 2023

At the beginning of the second semester (Jan-May) 2023, a two-day orientation for new program students took place at EAST. These students hail from 6 countries in East Asia, South-East Asia, South Asia, and North America. We are thankful to God for leading each to do theological studies at EAST. Among them are ministers, church workers, missionaries, and working professionals. It was truly heartening to hear them share their stories–journeys of faith even as they arrive in EAST, Singapore for further equipping in a multi-cultural environment and for spiritual refreshment.

Please pray for each of them to experience God’s transforming work in their personal lives and ministry through their studies and cross-cultural exposure in Singapore and beyond.

Shorts: Student’s Views on Online Classes


What are EAST student’s views on online classes held last semester?

This is a pertinent question even as we begin a new academic year this month with all of our classes being held through online means. All first year classes are held online throughout the semester while the rest of classes are either online or blended. Hear what they have to say!

The video recording of three students featured above is safely done in their home during the circuit breaker period.

We welcome our new program students who have recently began their learning journey with us through EAST Aleph! How do we help new students transition well into a multicultural community of learners while physically in multiple locations due to COVID-19 restrictions? By creating multiple opportunities for interactive activities with and among the new students using online means.

The EAST Aleph two-week immersion program orientate students to the cultural and academic norms, provide spiritual and relational connections, and begin building the personal and ministry foundations for lasting transformation in their study life. For this year, online exercises are conducted to familiarise participants with effective collaborative learning and community-building platforms.
