FEE-HELP is the primary means by which students can be assisted with the cost of MCD University of Divinity tuition fees.
FEE-HELP is a loan given to eligible fee-paying students to help pay part or all of their tuition fees. The Australian Government pays the amount of the loan directly to the student's provider. Students repay their loan through the tax system once their income is above the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment.
The MCD University of Divinity recommends that all eligible students consider FEE-HELP. Those who make early voluntary repayments receive 5% discount on their loans.
The above information is indicative only. Visit the United Faculty of Theology for more information.
Fees represent only a small proportion of the real cost of theological education at Trinity, and are effectively subsidised through the support of the College’s own resources including endowments and support from individuals and parishes.
Candidates for ordination are sometimes eligible for financial assistance from their sponsoring Dioceses.
Students undertaking the Ministry Formation program on campus may also be eligible for other forms of financial assistance to meet expenses for residence at Trinity through scholarships and other means-tested grants.

Trinity College Theological School (TCTS) is a place where students are actively encouraged in their pursuit of knowledge and their development as leaders in the church. We are supported academically, spiritually and socially and encouraged to achieve to the best of our ability.
I am very privileged to be the recipient of a residential scholarship. This is a unique opportunity that has enabled me to achieve my goals, and being a member of the College community means I can participate not only in the activities of the Theological School, but also the activities of the wider College community.
At TCTS, I have grown and developed as a potential leader in the church and become increasingly confident in leading worship. I have also grown as an academic, aided by the College’s excellent programs, library resources, and dedicated, knowledgeable lecturers and tutors.
In coming to Trinity, you become part of its vibrant community, and will reap the many benefits it has to offer.
