About this college

The Sydney Korean Theological College (SKT) delivers the listed Sydney College of Divinity undergraduate and postgraduate coursework awards in Korean.

SKT began in 2010 and provides the opportunity for people to study theology in the Korean language within Australia, an English-speaking country, and earn a degree officially recognised by the Australian government.

The awards are approved for both local and overseas students, and are suitable for Koreans

– who do not have the language qualification to undertake these studies in English
– who prefer to study in their first language.

The Korean academic faculty come from various Reformed church backgrounds. Intensive lectures are often delivered by visiting lecturers from Korea. SKT has established partnerships for academic and cultural exchanges with leading theological educational institutes in Korea –  Soongsil University, Chongshin University and Theological Seminary, Sungkyul University, Kosin University, Presbyterian University and Theological Seminary, Seoul Bible Graduate School of Theology, and Asia United Theological University.

Choosing SCD Sydney Korean Theological College

The Theology and Education Goals of the Sydney College of Divinity Korean School of Theology:

We believe in God who is revealed in the Bible, our Savior Jesus Christ who came to earth as the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit whom He sent, and we receive historical orthodox Reformed Theology as our theology.

We pursue a sound ecumenical theology that works together with other Christian churches that accepts the Nicene Creed. It is a partnership in a mission-minded approach that extends the Lord’s kingdom, acknowledging the diverse characteristics in faith of different denominations and the diversity of methodology in theological pursuits. This is the position of SCD Korean School of Theology.

Based on the positive achievements of Korean churches, we aim to nurture balanced Christian intellectuals and trustworthy devoted Christian workers who pursue the renewal of Australia, the country where we live, and Australian churches, and the services of all the nations.

We are a non profit educational institution that teaches Sydney College of Divinity awards accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency(TEQSA) of the Commonwealth Government of Australia. We seek a high level of education without seeking a financial gain.

The Korean awards aim to

– prepare future pastors and leaders for the Korean church in Australia,
– educate Koreans who wish to understand the Christian faith better; and
– train scholars who will be able to teach theological studies to future generations
