DISCLAIMER: Due to the on-going international and domestic travel restrictions in Australia and the broader impact of COVID-19, Hillsong College will not be accepting new “CERTIV in Ministry” students in the City Campus in 2021.


Students will have both separate and shared lectures. You’ll want to bring a notebook or a laptop to these classes; referencing your notes will be useful for discussion in tutorials, working on your assessment, or even in team huddles in your teams across church.


Tutorials are smaller discussion groups specifically designed for students who are focusing on the same area of study and are of similar ages. You’ll be free to ask questions, discuss different opinions, dive deeper into Lecture content, and even get a jump start on your upcoming assessments.


As a student, you’ll be assessed in an area of church involvement which we call ‘practicum’. You’ll have the chance to put your course learning to practical use while being a critical member of a team within Hillsong Church.
