Welcome Future Students!
Choosing where to study is an important decision. You will be committing time, finances and a great deal of mental and physical effort as you prepare yourself to make your unique contribution to this world. Alphacrucis College (AC) seeks to be a place where education and exploring faith go hand-in-hand - a place where the Christian faith is translated into a broader concern for the community, social justice and the environment. We invite you to join our community.
AC offers a range of study options for international and local students:
Vocational Education & Training Studies
Certificates and diplomas provide students with a ‘hands-on’ learning experience, equipping them with skills and resources for a wide range of career options. Combining practical skills training with a Christian ethos, these courses help students to succeed in all they do. Certificate programs can be completed in one year (full-time equivalent) and can lead into a diploma or a bachelor degree. Diplomas can be completed in one to two years (full-time equivalent) and can lead into a bachelor degree. Internships or other forms of practical experience form part of most of our vocational programs.

- The Bachelor of Ministry, Bachelor of Theology and Bachelor of Business can each be completed in three years (full-time equivalent).
- The Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of Ministry double-degree can be completed in four years (full-time equivalent).
- All AC bachelor degrees can articulate into an honours or masters program.
Postgraduate studies are recommended for potential students who have previously completed a recognised degree.
- Within the School of Christian Studies AC offers the Master of Arts (Christian Studies), and the Master of Theology.
- Within the School of Professional Studies AC offers the Graduate Certificate in Christian Leadership, and the Master of Teaching (Primary).
Professional Development:Professional Development subjects and programs are specifically developed for working professionals. You can choose to study individual subjects without the need to enrol in a whole certificate or degree, or simply attend classes without the extra pressure of assignments or exams (not-for-credit or Audit).
Individual Subject:Students can enrol in a particular subject without the commitment of a whole program (provided they meet the pre-requisites). These subjects may be credited towards an award at a later date.
Reasons to study at Alphacrucis College
A Unique Approach to Education
At AC we believe in transformative learning - education that inspires and transforms. We seek to provide our students with an educational experience that integrates faith, learning, and living. In our classrooms we create an environment that combines specialist knowledge with practical insight and open conversation. This produces an innovative classroom experience with solid content. This inspiring learning environment is also available in flexible delivery options for many courses – where the classroom comes to you!
Inspiring Faculty and Trainers
Inspiring teachers are at the heart of quality education and training. We employ faculty and trainers who are not only specialists in the areas they teach, combining academic excellence with substantial practical experience, they also love to teach. They strive to be mentors and inspirational role models for their students as they prepare and challenge them to take an active role in shaping their culture and their world.
AC courses enable you to choose a study program to suit your lifestyle. Study for fun at audit level, enrol in individual subjects, or enrol in a course at vocational, undergraduate or postgraduate level. Many of our courses are offered in flexible delivery mode, which enables students to utilise our face-to-face, intensive and online study formats. In most courses, students have access to our e-Learning platform Moodle, which provides resources, podcasts, on-line forums and tutor assistance. Further to this, in 2014, we will be bringing even more innovation to flexible delivery by trialing our new flexible online campus with two courses: the Diploma of Music and Graduate Certificate in Leadership (GCCL).
