'The broad aim of seminary formation is to provide a suitable context for vocational discernment and growth and to enable candidiates to become priests who are, "true shepherds of souls after the example of Our Lord Jesus Christ, teacher, priest and shepherd". '

Norms for Priestly Formation~The Bishops' Conference of Scotland, 6.1

Seminary formation is organised around four principal areas of formation as laid out in the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Pastores Dabo Vobis ~ Human Formation, Spiritual Formation, Academic Formation and Pastoral Formation. The link below takes you to the 'Daily Life' section of the Pontifical Scots College website which details the content of these areas of formation further.
