The academic year of 2016-2017 is opening soon on January 16, 2017. The faculty of Pastoral Theology will be the first to open for both the first and the second years, since the first promotion is now in the second year.
The First Semester of the 2015-2016 academic year was successfully completed – and now all the students are back and all the lectures are well attended despite the political troubles in Bujumbura which have resulted in over 400 killings in the last 6 months. The students come from a variety of types of schools and from the complete range of housing conditions.
BCU Official Launching Ceremonies, held on 20th October 2014, were honoured by the presence of the Right Rev. Tim Dakin, Bishop of Winchester, UK and his Chaplain Rev. Gavin Foster as well as Bishops of the Province of the Anglican Church of Burundi, a representative from the Ministry of Higher Education, Senior Clergy and representatives of the Laity and many others.<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaFkT8VaFME>
