School of Theological Studies

The School of Theological Studies (STS) provides study opportunities for a wide range of students, including people who wish to follow a particular vocational pathway for work in the church, and those who want to study theology for personal interest and enjoyment.

STS accepts full-time and part-time student enrolments, in vocational or higher education programs, for attendance on campus or through flexible study modes. Students can also choose a single unit enrolment, either for credit or audit. In addition, STS offers Grassroots Training and regular non-award evening classes.
