Frequently Asked Questions

1. What language will the school be held in?

Our school will be taught in English without translation. We do encourage you to not let this be a hindrance to your application as the school could also help you grow in English.

2. Where and when will Awakening School of Ministry take place?

Our school will be located in Eimeldingen (near Lörrach, Germany) and our 8-month program will run from October 2022 to May 2023.

3. Are you accepting international students?

YES!! Since we are a non-accredited school, we cannot help with any visa applications. If you hold a Schengen passport or have a Schengen residency or visa which will allow you to attend school, you can apply.

4. Can I work on the side?

Yes, school hours are designed in a way for you to be able to work a part-time job after school or on weekends.
