WATS now enjoys affiliate membership with the Accrediting Council for Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA). In addition, WATS undergraduate degrees are offered in affiliation with the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
WATS seeks to establish credibility in the international academic community. Accordingly, it has established close working relationships with Asbury Theological Seminary, in Wilmore, Kentucky, USA—for its Masters’ Program. Master’s relationship does not involve formal affiliation, although the exchange of the teaching faculty and various forms of academic consultancy are included in the Memorandum of Understanding.
