Residential: Students of the school are divided into two main categories (i) face-to-face students, who are studying full-time or part-time at the United Faculty of Theology, and (ii) students studying through the School's online program, often in other parts of Australia or overseas. Almost all the students are non-resident. A third group of students are engaged in the School's Certificate in Theology and Ministry, a parish-based small group program (not unlike EFM).

Qualifications:  The Theological School teaches towards the diplomas and degrees of the Melbourne College of Divinity (http://www.mcd.edu.au/), which is a self-accrediting Higher Education Provider, i.e. awards its own university-level degrees. Our students are studying everything from the Diploma of Ministry to research doctorates. The main degrees studied by candidates for ordination (about half of our student numbers) are the Bachelor of Theology and the Master of Divinity.
