About us

Uniting College is the Uniting Church's college for discipleship and ministry training in South Australia. We provide high quality, accessable education for all people: lay and those preparing for ordination and other specified ministries within the Uniting Church, so they may become effective leaders, empowered by the Spirit. We also provide study options for people from a range of church backgrounds with a personal interested in Christian theology.

We deliver vocational education and training and undergraduate and postgraduate courses in partnership with the Adelaide College of Divinity and Flinders University.  

We are a place where life and learning intersect. While some of our lessons are taught in classrooms, others are learned in a variety of community settings such as aged care facilities, churches, hospitals, sporting clubs and schools, as students undertake practical ministry placements.  Teaching is delivered by a flexible blend of face-to-face, distance and online learning that enables us to reach students across Australia and internationally.

We encourage deep thinking and academic excellence. Our students come from Australia and overseas to study critical issues connecting Christian theology mission and ministry with contemporary life, in innovative classes taught by a faculty whose collective knowledge creates a rich and rewarding learning environment. 

Our approach to education is best summed up in 1 Corinthians 12:4 which says, ‘There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service’.

We hope that through your connection with us, you find ways to learn, lead and live.
