Off-Campus Study

SMBC off-campus study (for Part-Time study only) is more than just online study. It includes participation and interaction with lecturers and fellow students in live classes. We see studying in community, with all the discussion and insights that brings, as key to growing not only your theological knowledge but your Christian character.

Some of our classes are held just for off-campus students, but many are held in hybrid mode – that is, a mix of on-campus and off-campus students. Through the use of video conferencing technology, everyone can see and hear everyone else in the class!

So no matter where you are – in Australia, or around the world – as long as you can adjust to Sydney time (as you will need to be available to attend each class live), you’re welcome to join many of our classes and progress through your diploma, bachelor or masters course, or even just to audit classes that are of interest to you. You will need a computer and a good internet connection.

We know the off-campus experience isn’t entirely the same as the on-campus one, and so we are continually seeking ways of providing support and fellowship amongst our off-campus student cohort, for example via our Off-Campus Student Study Hub (Student Moodle).

Note: It is possible to study a mix of on-campus and off-campus units at one time, but you must stick to one study mode per unit.
