To graduate with a Sydney College of Divinity award you must enrol with one of our colleges. Each college belongs to a different Christian tradition offering a set of SCD awards, along with other learning programs (eg field trips) that may be unique to the college. Explore the colleges to find out the best place for you to study.
Once you have chosen your college, an Application for Admission can be made through the college’s website.
An admission form must be submitted to the college with the requested supporting documentation, otherwise the application could be delayed or disallowed. It is therefore important that prospective students enrolling in a course and/or unit contact the Registrar of the college to get the complete list of documents required to be submitted.
Most documents need to be certified, so ensure you get this organised in advance. Where required to provide certified documents, you must submit the certified copies of the original documents, not the original documents themselves. The certified copies will be held as a record of the Sydney College of Divinity and cannot be returned to you.
Examples of certified copies required include:
Documents must be certified by authorised officers only. If you are an authorised officer, you are not permitted to certify your own documents. Documents that have been electronically certified will not be accepted.
Documents in languages other than English will need to be translated.
Most of the documents required are listed below. It is possible that the Sydney College of Divinity may request additional documents if required.
If you want to use your prior learning and/or work experience to reduce the number of units you may need to study, then you will have to complete the relevant section on your admission form and include:
Documents submitted for admission are retained by the Sydney College of Divinity and will not be returned to you.
Sydney College of Divinity will take steps to verify that certified documents are authentic. We may contact the issuing institution to verify the authenticity of documents submitted. We may also use the contact details of the authorised officer for this purpose.
Submitting documents that are altered and/or not true is a fraudulent activity and may be referred to the police.
