BTI’s mission is to provide Christ-centred, Biblically informed professional preparation, development and research for influential service. Our undergraduate degrees are of very high quality, providing exceptional success rates and fitting our students for professional roles in a variety of rewarding careers – as teachers, counsellors, social workers, lawyers and managers. Our postgraduate programmes are world-class.

At BTI, we are a dedicated and growing community of learners who are motivated by a Christian faith that is meaningful to us and fuels our passion to be agents of positive change. Stretching our students toward excellence in their chosen field is a high priority and developing the “whole person” is an integral part of that process and is really important to us. This approach makes our graduates stand out from the crowd, be different, and most importantly, make a difference in the lives of others.
