Why study at SCD?

The Sydney College of Divinity is a leading Christian theological provider, offering high quality, accredited awards to equip people for effective professional and lay ministry in a rapidly changing environment.

The College operates through a number of member theological colleges which represent a wide range of Christian denominations and traditions. The bringing together of these different traditions has resulted in greater knowledge and deeper respect for the various ways of interpreting and living the Christian Gospel.  This ecumenical spirit gives opportunity for Sydney College of Divinity students to study within the one denomination, or across a range of denominations and have all the units count towards the completion of their degree.

Students can choose to study from a range of courses in full-time or part-time mode.  Our colleges are equipped with excellent learning technologies which are used for both classroom based and distance or online learning.

The SCD caters well for students who wish to study by distance, offering a range of flexible learning options including online courses, distance study packages, virtual learning through live-streaming, and mixed-mode options.

To find out more about your study options with the SCD, contact the Office of the Dean or the Registrar at one of our Member Institutions.
