You will be required to provide a completed application form, pastor’s recommendation, personal identification in the form of a photocopy of the title page of your current passport, a copy of your Secondary School and Tertiary academic awards, a passport sized photo, and other documents.

Before you make an application for study at QTC, it is important that you possess the following required characteristics:

  • a personal relationship with God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his saving work at the cross;
  • a genuine connection with a local church that you usually attend on a weekly basis;
  • a real desire to be better equipped for ministry through the study of God’s word and engagement with college life;
  • a willingness to prioritise theological study and be disciplined in applying yourself academically;
  • an awareness of the requirements of the Australian College of Theology;
  • a demonstrated competency in English at a requisite level.

QTC will only enroll an international student who has previously studied an approved course in Australia if the student can demonstrate that:

  • The student had demonstrated commitment to studies in that previous course;
  • The student had a good attendance record for that course;
  • The student has paid all fees for that course.

    Submit Your Forms

    Once you contact our Registrar, they will organise to guide you through the process of applying to enrol at QTC. You will also be asked to supply a reference from your pastor confirming that, in their view, training at college is the right step for you.
     
    Applicants who (a) have an assessable qualification that was undertaken solely in English in one of a set of prescribed countries OR (b) have been a resident in Australia with English being the language spoken at home and at work for ten (10) or more years are NOT required to provide proof of English language proficiency for consideration for admission to an ACT course.
     
    All other applicants MUST provide proof of English language proficiency for consideration for admission to an ACT course through QTC. Such proof will normally be by provision of the results of an IELTS test (Academic Version).
     
    For admission to the one year Diploma courses, such as the Diploma of Theology, the minimum IELTS result required is 6.0 overall with a minimum of 6.0 in each subtest.
     
    For admission to the two and three year undergraduate courses such as the Bachelor of Theology degree or Associate Degree of Theology, the minimum IELTS result required is 6.5 overall with a minimum of 6.5 in each subtest.
     
    For admission to a postgraduate course such as the Master of Divinity degree, the minimum IELTS result required is 7.0 overall with a minimum of 7.0 in reading and writing, and 6.5 in listening and speaking subtests.
     
    The Registrar will also send you an Australian College of Theology (ACT) enrolment form if you have not already submitted it with your QTC Application form. This is to be returned to the Registrar within two weeks where possible, as well as a passport sized photo (for your student ID card). You must apply for any cross-credits from any previous related qualification by the start of your first Semester at QTC.
     
    Send your completed forms, student transcripts, Pastor’s reference, Language test results (if applicable), copy of the title page of your current passport and ID photo to:

    Interview

    The College will arrange for you to have an interview with the Principal and another member of the college staff. This can be conducted by Skype or phone and will help to determine whether theological college is the right step for you at this time. We will also talk with you about entry requirements and which course best suits you.

    College Confirmation

    If your application is successful the College will contact you (usually by email) to confirm the offer of a place. You will then receive a letter of offer and an Overseas Student Written Agreement for you to sign, indicating your acceptance and agreement. This is to be returned to QTC. An Overseas Student Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) will then be generated by the College and sent to you to use in your application for an International Student VISA for Australia. You will be required to complete your qualification in the minimum time for a full-time student, e.g. 3 years for a Bachelor of Theology or Master of Divinity.
