Studying Online

studying online

We believe studying on campus is the best option.  Most students attest that interacting with others, forming new friendships, and experiencing firsthand worshipping and fellowshipping together, enhanced and enriched their theological education and spiritual development.

However, we recognise that, for a variety of reasons, not everyone can study on campus and so we are continually striving to provide for those who choose the online option, a high-quality learning experience.

Here are some important things you should know:

  • Virtually all our subjects are available online, except our “intensive” units
  • Online study is not less work because there are usually additional requirements to compensate for missing the on-campus experience. It is essential that you are disciplined and keep up with the unit requirements during each semester.
  • As an online student, you can attend lectures from time to time without changing your online study status.
  • Online units usually utilise forums, webinars and some video content, as well as all the materials offered to on-campus students.
  • Malyon library has about 30,000 books, more than 500 e-books, and provides access to online journals. It is accessible 24 hours, 7 days a week. We also offer a mail service for sending books to students as required.
  • All our student support services are available to online students such as; the Academic Tutor for assistance with study techniques and assessment preparation, the Registrar for advice regarding vocational goals, course choices and unit selections, and the Chaplain for pastoral care
