St Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Theological College is accredited through the Sydney College of Divinity (SCD), a tertiary education institution providing high quality, accredited awards in theology and related areas through the teaching colleges that are its member institutions.
The Sydney College of Divinity is registered as a Higher Education Provider. Its degrees and awards are accredited by the NSW Department of Education & Communities (NSW DEC), with a number of awards also registered in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania. The SCD is approved as a Higher Education Provider under the Higher Education Support Act 2003. It is also a CRICOS provider in New South Wales (CRICOS Code: 02948J), Queensland (CRICOS Code: 02904K) and Western Australia (CRICOS Code: 03284C).
St Andrew's is approved to offer units via three modes of delivery:
- Weekly daytime lectures during the course of each semester. This mode of delivery is the most common and principally, although not exclusively, for undergraduate (seminarian) students.
- Weekly evening lectures during the course of each semester. The units offered are of a foundational character and in most cases available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students alike.
- Online learning. A small number of units are offered as online distance education units. Some of these units, notably those designated as foundational, require compulsory attendance at an on-campus residential school.
Students studying at university or any recognised tertiary institution may be able to undertake discrete units as electives towards their own undergraduate or postgraduate awards subject to the approval of their own Faculty Department.
