The Undergraduate Certificate in Divinity serves as an entry point to undergraduate awards in theology, philosophy and ministry.

Graduates may proceed to a Diploma in Theology, an Advanced Diploma in Theology and Ministry, an Advanced Diploma in Philosophy, or to the Bachelor of Ministry or Bachelor of Theology.


The Undergraduate Certificate in Divinity is a new award that is only supported for 2021 at this stage, which means that the qualification must be completed by the end of 2021. Unless the qualification is extended or made permanent, the necessary risk mitigation strategy is that new students commencing in second semester 2021 can only be enrolled full time (not part), and therefore must complete in 2021. There can be no leave of absence, or extension beyond the end of second semester 2021.
