but just have a few questions?


General Questions


I want to study at Bible college. But what will it get me?

Study through Newlife Bible College affords students the opportunity to study ministry and theology at a variety of levels, from personal interest audit (which means no assessment or assignment writing) to Higher Education study of a one year Diploma of Ministry or to continue on to a three year Bachelor of Ministry. Post Graduate options are also available.

Can I get transfer of credit for my past studies?

Students who have completed courses from another approved educational institution can apply for transfer of credit. Students who wish to apply must complete the relevant application form and provide the necessary documentary evidence of knowledge, skills and/or competency in support of their application.

What are the class times?

Our class times are structured to meet the needs of our varied student base. Classes are held morning, afternoon and evening on Wednesdays and Thursday. Contact the College to view our calendar and timetable.

As a full-time student, how much study is involved?

A full time study load for students in higher education courses is between 27 and 36 credit points per academic year of study which equates to a minimum of 6 units per academic year and an expected 8 units per academic year. On-site study will require a commitment of a minimum of 9 up to 12 hours of in-class or contact time. Full time students should allow at least 27 to 36 hours per week for their study as a minimum time requirement.

What are my part-time and full-time study options?

Newlife College offers flexible learning options with both internal, on-site classes and distance study available. Students can study at their own pace, enrolling in as little as one unit per academic year as a part-time load. Students who wish to fast-track their full time study can access distance or external units to complete the course in a shorter time.

What ministry opportunities are available to me upon completion?

Ministry and theological study opens doors to lay and ordained ministry. This is the entry step into ordained ministry to lead a congregation or engage in pastoral, youth, childrens or missions roles.

Can I study ministry at university level?

The Diploma of Ministry and Bachelor of Ministry are university level accredited and degreed courses through Adelaide College of Divinity.

Is FEE HELP available?

FEE Help is available for our courses for students who are eligible by Australian Government standards. Visit the StudyAssist website for more information and to check your eligibility.

What pathways can I do with this degree?

Ministry and theological study can prepare students for either lay or ordained ministry. They will acquire the knowledge and skills to enable them to take their place confidently in both church and society. Read about our Courses to find out more.
