STUDENTS ABOUT MATS

FIVE REASONS WHY MATS IS FOR YOU
EUROPEAN BACHELOR DEGREE - BOLOGNA PROCESS
Our Ministry and Theology Studies are accredited by the Bologna Process. This accreditation ensures the recognition of scores received at our college across Europe.
Poland is a country that connects East and West. Due to its geopolitical location and rich history, it has always been a place where diverse cultures mix giving way to modern society. Warsaw is one of the most rapidly developing cities in Europe where almost half of the city area is green. It is the capital and the biggest city in Poland, where people from all over the world meet and connect.
MATS program is also available online. You can become our undergraduate student without coming to Poland. Most of our lectures are live-streamed and recorded weekly, from Wednesday to Friday. If you intend to work and study, please plan accordingly.
In my opinion it is a greate place to meet new people and to expand your knowledge of subjects related to God and Christianity.
Being a student at CTSS is a joy, as we bond with a diversified international community of students, learn as a team, exchange ideas, have interesting subjects and assignments, thought-provoking reading and writing materials, and also the lecturers are committed and come from multi-ethnic backgrounds.
Being primarily an online student, I take opportunities to visit the campus and be part of the community whenever possible, as I live in Gdynia, which is 350 km from Warsaw. I am so glad to be part of the MATS program, for almost a year now, and I see myself adding perspectives in many directions.

When I was finishing primary school God gave me the desire to go to college. But I didn't know what studies I wanted to go to. At first my dad suggested CTSS, but it took a few years before God convinced me to go there. Despite difficult health experiences, I managed to finish high school with enough results to go to college. No one believed that I would make it, even me. It was a divine miracle. After that I was sure, I wanted to go to CTSS.
I think that CTSS is a unique place and a unique university. It encourages a warm atmosphere and gives the feeling that you are not alone in the hardships of studying. It teaches, opens new opportunities in which you can find God's perspective for you.
I met wonderful open people here who broaden my horizons. I also made valuable friendships. I also broke the language barrier, gained a lot of theoretical and practical experience, broadening my knowledge and skills thanks to the diversity of international lecturers.
Hi, I’m from Angola. Before coming to Poland I was studying business communication at the university. But I felt a call from the Lord to prioritize knowledge of the Word of God, so when I received a scholarship to study pastoral theology in Poland I did not think twice.
Thank God it’s being a very good experience. I’m grateful for this opportunity.
I’m happy to study here because of the quality of the teaching, sympathy of the teachers and good friends I have here.
My name is Beatrice. I am from Nigeria, currently studying at the College of Theology and Social Sciences in Warsaw, Poland. My active participation in theology classes widened my knowledge in studying the sources of Christian beliefs and it has also given me insights into humanity's history. I'm here to complete my theological studies because knowing more about God gives me joy and satisfaction.
I’m from Ukraine. I came to Poland as a missionary to the Ukrainian church to serve and preach the Gospel. I found a job to have money for living here and not to depend on anybody. After half of the year of my working and serving in Poland I needed some documents to keep working. My friend Yulya told me about the opportunity to go to college and continue my work. So, I came here and started to live in the dormitory.
I’m happy I can study here because there are good teachers and mentors in the college. Some of them are Poles and some come from other countries. I also like my college friends and most classes. Studying here helps me in my ministry and my spiritual growth.
I'm from Venezuela. I was studying cinematography, but when I got the opportunity to study Theology in Poland, was a huge decision to make, so I understood that if I followed Jesus first, he would give to my life what I need.
My friend from Venezuela, but living here talked to me about this college and with the pastor they were willing to help me to start the process to study here. Without them, and God, I wouldn't be here...
This is completely different from what I thought. In one year I've learned more than my entire life in the church; but not only this, but now I understand why they got this phrase "Come as you are and become who God wants you to be". So, if it is in only in 1 year, I can't imagine how I would feel when I finish...
