Applying is the first step to starting well. If accepted and enrolled, there are preparatory readings and papers to be completed before the first residency. To support strong starts, we advise completing the application process 4-6 months before the residency starts.
International students also plan for the additional time it may take to secure a proper visa.
The maximum time for completing the D.Min. program is six years from the time of your first residency.
