Moore College recognises indigenous Australians as traditional custodians of this land under God’s good hand and is committed to seeing the work of the gospel thrive among indigenous communities.
Moore College’s on-campus undergraduate courses typically require students to have completed a university degree for admission. Enquiries are welcome from Australian residents without a university degree as students with work and life experience, or who have completed a VET course may be admitted if they demonstrate their capacity for study through an entrance exam. Admission to the Moore College online Diploma of Biblical Theology (DBT) requires only the Higher School Certificate (or equivalent), not a university degree. For further enquiry into admission please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The faculty at Moore College are very open to assist students in study skills as well as in particular subject areas, all students are encouraged to seek any help required as need should arise. On top of this, the Dean of Students can offer support where students are not coping with the course load. In this instance Moore College will make arrangements for suitable help to be given. Moore College also runs training on academic writing and the Dean of Students will ensure that all indigenous students are in a position to attend this training and it meets the particular needs of each student.
Indigenous students will be placed into a small chaplaincy group as the primary means of pastoral care for undergraduate students at college. The chaplains responsible for these smaller groups (usually a member of faculty and a female chaplain) will be conscious of the cultural and social challenges faced by indigenous students. Chaplains will meet regularly with indigenous students to ensure the primary pastoral care for students is maintained. Chaplains are open to discuss issues including personal, financial, study and ministry related issues. The Dean of Students will also be available should any pastoral issues arise that cannot be resolved within the chaplaincy setting.
Moore College has a number of student residences that are available for undergraduate students to live in while at college. Several factors are involved in the allocation of students’ residences. These include, the student’s year at college, the number of children in the family, disabilities or special needs and whether they are international students or are from outside Sydney. In recognition of the significant cultural challenges faced by indigenous students, they will get priority in housing allocation similar to that of international students.
Moore has had very few Indigenous students in its history and our aim is to have a minimum of three Indigenous students in full-time courses on campus at all times. Under God, generous donors have provided funds for scholarships for indigenous students studying at Moore College. All indigenous students are encouraged to apply.
