The first year of study is conducted for all on a study block basis, and students fly in from all over Australia six times a year for two weeks of classes each block. ABSTUDY covers most of the costs of travel and accommodation for these blocks. Ministry Studies students continue their studies via study blocks for the rest of their course, while Pastoral Ministry students must move to Perth and attend classes on campus for their 2nd and 3rd years. The 4th year for Pastoral Ministry students is a hands-on year. Students are located in the field learning practical ministry skills under a minister in a church. Theory is learnt via regular sessions with the minister, home study, and study blocks back at the College.
The health course is conducted on a block study basis, and is made up of units in health, public presentations, life skills, and Bible. The college aims for students to not only learn the theory of health, but model what they learn in their own lives and communities.
Graduation is held at the end of each year, and students are awarded a Certificate or Diploma according to the level of their current achievement. This has proved to be a worthwhile incentive towards academic progress.
