Ministry Education Program
Applicants for the Trinity College Theological School Ministry Education Program will also need to arrange a short interview with the Director of the Ministry Education Centre. This program is administered separately from your University enrolment, although your formal subjects will be taken as part of your degree program.
Please note that there are special requirements for students who are not Australian citizens. The University of Divinity website explains these requirements and gives details of visas, fees and support. Trinity offers some assistance in essay-writing to students for whom English is not their first language. Please see the International Students page for further details. In general, note that we are not able to offer financial assistance toward course fees or living expenses.
