Flexible Study Options

Study Loads

At Morling we recognise that not all students can attend weekly lectures, so we have established a flexible program offering both day and evening classes, fully online units, units with classes spread throughout semester and units across the summer and winter breaks.

Please be aware that not all units are available in every mode - please refer to the Scheduled Unit Offerings for your faculty for more information.

Our mission is to equip men and women with the knowledge that they need to serve God in many different roles: pastoral ministry, in the work place, Christian education, missions work, counselling, and chaplaincy, and it is often difficult to stop working in order to pursue further study - check out our flexible study options now!


A standard full-time load comprises an enrolment of 48 credit points (normally 4 units) per semester. 36 credit points is also considered full-time. In addition to enrolled Units, full-time on-campus Bible & theology students are encouraged to participate in a Transformational Discipleship Group, weekly chapel services called The Gathering, mentoring, church visits, Orientation Week activities, as well as other extra co-curricular activities such as Partnership Mission or a Missions Conference. 


A part-time load consists of a maximum enrolment of 24 credit points (normally 2 units) per semester. 

Audit / Casual Enrolment

Most of our on-campus units can be audited (enrolled on a casual/non-credit basis), for students who wish to upskill or pursue study for personal interest. Units completed in Audit mode do not count towards a formal award, but involve completing the unit in full, excluding assignments.

Monday/TUESDAY Night Live

Monday/Tuesday Night Live is for anyone who would like to be equipped with a better understanding of the Bible, Theology and Mission in an accessible way. You can join us in person on campus or via livestream for weekly lectures from Morling’s world-class teaching faculty.

Attend in person or zoom in to the livestream from home; Gather as a church or small group to watch via livestream.
