|Diploma of Ministry: 1 year|
Keen to be better equipped to serve God in your church, workplace, home?
Are you in a part-time or associate ministry role, and would like some theological training and a recognized qualification which includes the option of including several practical subjects?
Thinking that you should be training for ministry, but aren’t yet sure whether a three or four year theological degree is right for you?
If any of these describe you, then the QTC Diploma of Ministry (DipMin) is an option seriously worth considering. You don’t need to have studied at uni before to be able to enrol in the DipMin.
Along the way, you will get to hear more from the range of visiting pastors and scholars that pass through QTC - many of whom spend time in the classroom with our students. Recent speakers have included John Piper, Mark Driscoll, Don Carson, Mark Dever, Douglas Moo, Carl Trueman, Richard Bauckham, Kent Hughes, & Christopher Wright.

Eligibility & Financial Support?
If you have completed Grade 12 with an OP of 11 or better (or the equivalent interstate or overseas), you are eligible to apply for the DipMin. If you are aged 21 years and over and can satisfy the college of your ability to study the course, you may be eligible for mature age entry without the Grade 12 requirement. If English is not your first language, you will need to be able to demonstrate sufficient proficiency in English – please contact the Registrar for details.
The course is accredited within Australia as an award of the Australian College of Theology, of which QTC is a member institution along with around 20 colleges nationally. As such, it is a recognized course for the purposes of Fee-Help, Austudy, Youth Allowance (provided you meet the government’s eligibility requirements), and for overseas students (CRICOS # 02788J). Current fee levels for units in the DipMin can be found at http://www.qtc.edu.au/continuing-students
