What is TDK?
TDK, the Scientific Students’ Association is an opportunity within the Pentecostal Theological College to give talented students, in addition to their mandatory duties, a chance to deepen their research into a subject of their choice. Students participating in the TDK programme prepare a scholarly entry (i.e. a paper), as announced by the National Conference of Scientific Students’ Associations (OTDK), with the assistance of a mentor, which will be presented at the “in-house” faculty conferences of the Pentecostal Theological College. If the Evaluation Committee considers the entry presented to be suitable for the national contest, it allows the paper to be presented at the current OTDK conference.
The TDK program is intended not only to provide the opportunity to participate at the OTDK conference but also to provide students with outstanding capabilities opportunities for professional advancement, to offer a platform for the development of their capabilities, and to encourage them to pursue theology at a high level.
The TDK program was launched at our College in the academic year of 2017-18, and the details are still being developed.
