Ridley offers you a flexible training experience combining the best of evangelical scholarship with specialised practical training and several study modes. These include on-campus, online, in-context, part-time and full-time.

Studying full-time on-campus provides the best opportunity to prepare for ministry by developing critical skills and knowledge, benefitting from peer relationships, and working on a range of competencies with minimal distraction. Full-time study also allows you to explore a variety of ministries.

On-campus students benefit from Learning Communities which provide you with the opportunity to specialise in particular ministry areas, with new subjects, specialist speakers, mentoring and networking opportunities. Whether you want to be a church planter, Anglican minister, educational chaplain, youth worker, missionary or pastor in a non-Anglican denomination, our learning communities offer you a tailored learning experience.

If your circumstances mean that online study is the only realistic option, then Ridley offers a world-class online learning program that includes opportunities for spiritual formation and skills development. Evening classes, extensives and part-time study give you the opportunity to enjoy the Ridley community while you also work or engage in ministry.

Courses across these modes range from a six-month Graduate Certificate of Divinity, one-year Graduate Diploma, to the three-year Bachelor of Ministry, Bachelor of Theology, and Master of Divinity, Master of Ministry degrees. We also offer postgraduate courses for those who already have a theological degree including MA(Theology), MA(Ministry), MTh, PhD and ThD. We are approved to deliver the accredited courses of the Australian College of Theology and Fee-Help is available to eligible students.
