Special entry

ALC’s not for credit options and VET studies are available to all learners.

Have you thought about engaging in deeper study towards a degree but feel it’s too late?

It's never too late to start studying

If you think studying is only for young people just out of school, then think again. ALC welcomes applicants from a range of backgrounds. We are proud of our long history of theological education; in fact, a large number of all students at ALC are classed as adult entry students.

Many adult students thrive in a higher education setting where learning environments are enhanced by the valuable experiences and knowledge they bring to their studies.

Eligibility for admission

While admission to ALC undergraduate courses is normally on the basis of successful completion of secondary education to a standard required for tertiary studies, students may also be admitted on a special entry basis.

Appropriate entry may include the completion of the Special Tertiary Admission Test (STAT) or equivalent, or consideration of life experience and/or recognition of prior learning. Refer to Credit Transfer/RPL for further information about credit transfer and recognition of prior learning.

The Diploma in Theology can be an entry point into higher education study. Contact us if you want to know more.

Specific entry requirements for particular degrees and awards are included in the respective course information section.
