Ridley provides supervision of research candidates in the fields of:

  • biblical studies
  • theology
  • church history
  • ministry practice


  • Master of Theology (MTh)
  • Doctor of Ministry (DMin)
  • Doctor of Theology (ThD)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

Our research students are supported by their individual supervisor and through a series of postgraduate seminars that are held throughout the year.

Our capacity to supervise particular students depends on whether we have a member of faculty with expertise in the subject area chosen, and whether they have the capacity to take on extra research students.

Prospective research candidates should contact the college by email or mail, providing an overview of your topic and a curriculum vitae.

Further information can be found in the Ridley College Postgraduate handbook available from the Registrar’s office, and from the Australian College of Theology Postgraduate handbook.
