In 1983 Collonges Adventist Theological Seminary first signed an agreement with the University of Strasbourg so that students can receive state-accredited degrees in Theology. Dr. Richard Lehmann, as Dean, was crucial is this original agreement. In 2013 this agreement was revised, allowing Collonges’ students to obtain state-accredited Bachelor degrees without needing any additional work. This is achieved by having both Collonges and Strasbourg staff mark the students’ papers and exams. Roland Meyer and Ralf Wegener spearheaded this new agreement.
Recently six Collonges students received state-accredited degrees from Strasbourg, thanks to this agreement. We congratulate Rauma Doom, Valentin Decarrière, Xavier Jean-Marie, Adrian Suarez and Jédidja Mary for their achievement and wish them all the best in continuing their education in view of a fruitful ministry.
Strasbourg, home to the European Parliament, is one of the best centres for education in France. Its university is one of the most highly respected universities in Europe, with around 43,000 students from all over the world.
