Rural Ministry

“After starting out in Uni ministry in Darwin I realised I was not well trained for ministry and needed to undertake study. I enrolled with Trinity and in my current role as a pastor in a small rural town, Trinity has played an integral part equipping me to engage with a huge range of questions and issues that come up unannounced – from systematic theology issues, to biblical theology questions, to church history, and interpretation of specific biblical passages.

The biblical training I received – more than that – the whole way of understanding how rigorous study of the Bible integrates with all of life, is second to none, and useful for both personal devotion and faithfulness as well as teaching others about Jesus and all he has done, and continues to do, for us.”

YOUR STUDY WITH US

Our College is located close to the centre of Perth, Western Australia. Perth is a safe and beautiful city, located on the banks of the Swan River and a short drive from pristine beaches. The College is easily accessible by car, train, bus and bicycle. Our surroundings are a lively hub of cafes and restaurants, popular with students, office workers, visitors and local residents. Further information about life and study in Perth can be found in our Overseas Student Prospectus and Overseas Student Predeparture Handbook.

Scholarships

Places are available for overseas students who fulfill the application requirements of the College. Prospective students, especially from developing countries, should be aware that the College does not offer any scholarships or accommodation and there is no government assistance available.

What to Provide

In addition to course-specific entry requirements, overseas students also need to provide evidence of:

  • English competency requirements
  • Means of financial support for the length of the course
  • Contact details for two mature Christians (not family members) who know the student well and can provide a written letter of recommendation
  • Completed standardised reference from their Pastor or a Denominational leader.

At least one of these referees should be able to comment on the student’s involvement in the life and ministry of the Church and where possible give an assurance that a suitable ministry position will be available in the student’s home country on completion of the course.

Application Timeframe

As the application time can take at least 3 months, applications should reach the Registrar by the end of September for entry in the following year.

Please refer to the Australian Government COVID-19 Travel Restrictions and Information prior to making an application.

English Language Competency

Applicants who do not have English as their primary language are required to provide evidence of proficiency in written and spoken English. This may be achieved through copies of certificates or transcripts of studies completed in English or the satisfactory completion of the Academic Version of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). For more details, feel free to speak with our Registrar.

Student Life

Here at Trinity Theological College, we welcome, teach and support students from a range of denominations, cultures and countries who, like us, pray that all people might “know the only true God and Jesus Christ.”

Your education will take place in a community of prayer, fellowship and service with staff and peers. Face to face classes, easy access to your lecturers, the library and study desks will help you reach your academic goals.

But studying at Trinity is about more than just obtaining an academic qualification. We seek to foster a loving, worshipful community where we are all spurred on in faith. Free time in the student lounge, weekly community lunches, chapel services, Pastoral Care Groups and doing missions together give you the opportunity to build life-long relationships and great support networks.

Trinity Women invites female staff, spouses and alumni on a regular basis, giving women the opportunity to form great friendships. Our events gives them the platform where they can get support in encouraging their spouses for their future ministry roles. Once a week we have a crèche available, allowing spouses to attend classes on Wednesdays.

THE NATIONAL CODE

Trinity Theological College is bound by the following National Code through its affiliation with the Australian College of Theology:

The National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education for Overseas Students (2018) (the National Code) requires that no more than 25 per cent of a student’s total course by distance and/or online learning. In addition, overseas students must not enrol exclusively in distance or online learning units in any semester.*

The National Code is a set of nationally consistent standards that governs the protection of overseas students and delivery of courses to those students by providers registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS). Overseas students are advised to become familiar with the ESOS Framework, which provides the regulatory requirements for the Australian College of Theology and other providers of education to overseas students in Australia. It provides overseas students with protection. The National Code is available here.

The Australian College of Theology and its affiliated colleges are required to comply with the standards articulated in the National Code, and all documentation for your study can be found in the handbooks and policy documents of the ACT, as well as information given to you by Trinity Theological College.

For more information about studying in Australia, please see the Australian College of Theology website and the Department of Home Affairs website.

* Trinity Theological College does not offer any distance or online learning units.
