Entry Requirements


If you already have a degree in another discipline from an accredited tertiary institution (e.g. BA, BSc, BEd, etc.) you can enrol in:
 
• Graduate Certificate in Theology (GradCertTheol)
• Graduate Diploma in Theology (GradDipTheol)
• Master of Arts (Theology) (MA(Theol))
• Master of Divinity (MDiv)
 
If you already have a theological degree from another provider, we can talk to you about further studies at an advanced level in the MA(Theol), MTheol, and MTS degrees, or work at doctoral level in the PhD or DTheol.
 
 
You do not have to be sure about whether you will ever complete a degree in order to begin one.
