Welcome to Mamarapha College
Here is a place to find peace, encouragement, healing, and a deeper knowledge of God. Students leave the quiet atmosphere of the Karragullen campus with a better understanding of scripture, more effective life skills, equipped to make better choices and relationships, and with a willingness to serve and share what they have learnt with others.
Study at Mamarapha is conducted for all on a study block basis, and students fly in from all over Australia six times a year for up to two weeks of classes each block. Students who are eligible to receive ABSTUDY Away from Base assistance and are enrolled in an approved course are able to receive, Meals, Accommodation and Transport costs covered by ABSTUDY for up to 40 days each year while enroled in Diploma or Advanced Diploma Course.
