DIPLOMA OF CHAPLAINCY

The Higher Education Diploma of Chaplaincy is an accredited qualification for aspiring chaplains in all contexts. Through this exciting new program students receive practical and theological training on how to minister to those in need, gain greater understanding of those around them and are empowered to make a real and lasting difference in peoples’ lives.
A dynamic learning environment for chaplains has been created through this award being completed in a mix of online and Intensive study. All students completing the Diploma of Chaplaincy attend Intensives as a part of the course. Students can join the Ministry/Leadership face-to-face classes where available for BIB001 and THE001. (These 2 subjects can also be completed online.)
Students also undertake a 100 hour chaplaincy placement in an area of their choice as a part of their training.
