Key Words: Study options, non-residential, modular programs, Asia.

This article summarises the pros and cons of three main options for 'distance-mode' theological education where a local theological education institution is not available: 1. A fully-residential program, distant from the students' home base; 2. A distance education program; and  3. A non-residential, modular program, locally or distant from the students' home base. The programs of AGST Alliance’s MTh and PhD programs in SE Asia are given as a case study of the third option.
