What are the admission requirements?

What do I need for admission to the degree or diploma courses?

The normal academic requirement for admission is a degree from an Australian university or equivalent. This degree can be in any field. Mature age Australian residents without a university degree may be admitted by an entrance exam. International applicants must have a prior degree for admission.

Do I need references?

You will need to ask 3 people who know you well to complete a reference form. One of these people should be your minister and your referees should include both genders.

What if I am an international student?

International applicants should apply by 1 October prior to the year of commencement because of immigration procedures. As well as their application form and references international applicants will also need to provide:

  • A certified copy of academic transcripts for all tertiary qualifications.
  • For those without a university degree taken in English, a certified copy of an IELTS score of at least 6.5 in all categories. Postgraduate courses require 7.0 in all categories. TOEFL scores are also accepted.

How does FEE-HELP work?

FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme that covers tuition fees. As an approved Higher Education Provider (HEP) under the Higher Education Support Act (2003) Moore College can offer FEE-HELP to eligible students. FEE-HELP can cover all or part of a student’s tuition fees. FEE-HELP does not cover accommodation and living expenses. You are eligible for FEE-HELP if you meet certain conditions including:

  • undertaking study at an approved HEP
  • enrolled in an eligible unit of study in an accredited course
  • are an Australian citizen or meet the residency requirements
  • have a Tax File Number

What are the tuition fees?

The College website lists the tuition fees for all courses. You can also email registrar@moore.edu.au for the current fees.

Further information

For further information on FEE-HELP see the Australian Government’s website at www.studyassist.gov.au

How does Austudy work?

Austudy provides financial help for full-time students aged 25 years or more and studying an approved full-time course. You are considered a full-time student if you are doing at least 75% of the full-time workload. Other conditions may apply. Austudy payment is income and assets tested and the amount will vary according to your family situation. If you are eligible for Austudy you may also be eligible for Rental Assistance.

How do I organise this?

You organise this directly with Centrelink. The accredited courses of the College are recognised awards for the purpose of Austudy. Application forms may only be obtained from and lodged with a Centrelink office.

Can you tell me about the faculty?

Moore College faculty are gifted men and women who demonstrate qualities of pastor, teacher and scholar. They do this in the context of a community which is both a Christian family and an academic fellowship.

The faculty endorse the Protestant Reformed tradition as expressed in the Anglican Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion. They accept the Scriptures as God’s written word, containing all that is necessary for salvation and as the final authority in all matters of life and faith.

Why is there an emphasis on community?

Our aim at Moore College is to create a community of learners sitting together at the feet of Jesus, listening to Him in His word.

There is a host of reasons why this sort of community is important in ministry training.

It is because growing in the knowledge of God is more than simply learning and knowing ‘stuff’. It is about being shaped and transformed, growing in Christ-likeness. It is because learning to know God better has always happened in communities of believers, brothers and sisters together, not simply as teachers and students. It is because growing in the knowledge of God happens as His word and our response to that word is shared, discussed, understood and applied in the context of relationships with other believers. It is because growing in love for God means growing in love for others.

Is there accommodation?

College housing includes accommodation on the Newtown campus and homes owned by the College at Newtown, Croydon Park and North Parramatta. There are additional homes in Newtown owned by others and made available to the College for student accommodation. There is no student parking on campus.

Married Students

The supply of housing for married students is limited. Students wishing to apply for College housing should contact the Accommodation Manager on (02) 9577 9959. Applications should be made around June for the forthcoming year. Leases are signed for a calendar year with rent being charged monthly to student accommodation accounts. Rental rates vary with the type of accommodation.

Single Students

Single students are accommodated with full board at Carillon House or John Chapman House. This includes all meals except weekend lunches and Sunday dinners during the academic year. Catering is available for most special dietary requirements by consultation with the Head Chef. Student accounts are charged each Friday and statements issued monthly. Payments may be made by cash, cheque, EFTPOS or BPay.

Can I visit?

You are most welcome to visit College. You can come along to chapel and sit in on some classes, meet some students and faculty at morning tea or lunch, have a tour around College. There is also opportunity to sit down with a faculty member to ask all your questions and discuss your ministry goals.
