- Partner with us
Take a one-year diploma or three-year degree entirely online. You can take our fully accredited three-year MDiv, BTh, BMin or one of our one-year diplomas/graduate diplomas.
Learn from the best
Featuring leading evangelical scholars from Australia and around the world, you will learn from the same academics who write the leading commentaries and textbooks. Learn from Darrell Bock, Craig Blomberg, Lynn Cohick, Christopher Wright and John Walton, plus our own internationally renowned faculty including Brian Rosner and Mike Bird.
Designed just for you
Watching a lecture filmed from the back of a room is a yawn-fest. Worse still are audio files of classroom lectures. You won’t get that with Ridley Online. Designed from the ground up, lessons are developed by our professional educational designer, content experts and Ridley faculty over many months to create engaging learning experiences. Classes involve a variety of activities and quality multimedia presentations, filmed in our own studio.
Resources at your fingertips
Ridley Online has developed a partnership with Logos Bible Software to equip you for study with a customised collection of thousands of volumes including Bible tools, original language resources and textbooks. Our library offers an extensive collection of e-books and gives you access to a wealth of online journals and even offers postal service for printed books.
Heart, hands and head
Ridley’s commitment to your spiritual growth is reflected in a carefully structured program of Spiritual Formation. Deepen your walk with God, and grow in your faith as you engage in a process of reading, mentoring and reflection. Additionally, spiritual formation is integrated into many classes and activities to promote your maturity as a Christian. You also have the opportunity to develop skills and gain practical ministry experience through our program of Supervised Field Education.
Want to speed it up?
You might think that summer is a great time to take a subject and not just a break. Study Greek, foundation biblical studies, advanced-level exegesis, theology and practical subjects between November and February in Semester 3.
Mix it up
Fancy a bit of face-to-face learning? On-site intensives are offered throughout the year in subjects such as Leadership, Preaching, Pastoral Care and Cross-Cultural Ministry. Or, you could also join a study tour to places like Israel, Turkey and Greece, or Reformation Europe to learn and be connected. There are even opportunities to study abroad and gain cross-cultural ministry experience at our Eastern Mediterranean campus in Antalya Turkey.
