Background: A Skeptic website denied my qualifications (insisting Christians are 'stupid and dishonest'). Their problem is they don't ask and avoid this. Hence this page. Graduation 1993 without "student loan" or 'Government assistance'. This student in those days had no computer, internet, websites & email. Email for 1993 school details.

The Doctoral Degree Program is open only to graduates who have completed both Bachelor's and Master's degree courses or who have attained the necessary commencement credit level by earned or transferable credits. The Doctoral Program available is designed to assist students who wish to gain higher academic benefit and provided in two stages.

Stage One - Doctoral Program.

    Doctor of Theology.. Traditional theological subjects, including Missiology

     Doctor of Ministry..   Church Ministries

     Doctor of Religious..  Christian and Religious Education Education

Entrance Requirements:

     a) All students must have a minimum entry level of 192 credits.
     b) All students must attain a 256 credit level to graduate.
     c) All applicants for Stage One - Doctoral Program must have completed either three years pastoral ministry or equivalent service roles within the Christian church, or demonstrate exceptional academic grades granting early admission. Further information as to eligibility is obtainable by contacting the Registrar.

Candidates are requested to ensure that they are able to satisfy the entrance requirements as stated on page A13, item 7.03 of the general prospectus.


The college appoints to each qualifying candidate a "mentor" who serves as Adjunct-Tutor and guides through the program. Each candidate is expected to maintain a professional approach in the designated study and research program undertaken, and accordingly must meet stringent guidelines in submission of textual critiques and theses. All textual critiques undertaken shall be no less than 10,000 word minimum to earn 4 credits. The critique shall be submitted as per the standard Textual Analysis Format available from the college.

Candidates undertaking thesis work shall adhere to the following criteria:

Step 1 A Thesis proposal shall first be submitted to the Adjunct-tutor, containing:
(a) a description of the purpose and goals of the thesis.
(b) a list of research materials that will be used in developing the thesis. The college reserves the right to recommend other research material to be included in the project or that may be considered important to the study, that the student may not be familiar with.
(c) a thorough outline of the proposed thesis. Developing this outline is one of the best ways of developing your thought logically. Remember: the dictionary definition of a thesis is that a proposition is laid down as a theme to be discussed and proved, or it may be a dissertation to maintain and prove a particular viewpoint.

Step 2 Once approval has been given to proceed, the candidate is requested to prepare the thesis in consultation with the Adjunct-tutor.

Step 3 Presentation Format:
(a) The finished thesis should be presented in the format laid down in "A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations" by Kate L. Turabian (University of Chicago Press, revised and expanded edn 1987) - commonly referred to as the Turabiari format. This does not have to be followed slavishly, but gives valuable guidance to the various factors of presentation, particularly the numbering of paragraphs, and the use of quotes from references.

(b) The thesis must be presented in typed or printed form, on standard 8 1/2" x 11" or A4 paper, with wide margins on all sides (at least 20mm, but wider on left margin to allow for binding). The text should be single spaced, but allow space between paragraphs. Where a word-processor facility is available, the right hand margin can be justified. The thesis should have a Title page, Contents page(s), setting out chapters and page numbers etc., finishing with a conclusion, and a Bibliography, which should include the name of publisher and date of publication. Two hardbound copies of the thesis should be submitted.

(c) No thesis maybe submitted to NCITS if it has been accepted or is going to be accepted for academic credit elsewhere.

(d) Grammar, spelling and appearance will be considered in the grading of the thesis. All quotations must be clearly identified and the sources acknowledged. When your final thesis is presented, a grading committee of no less than two suitably qualified persons will be appointed as examiners. Their individual grading will be averaged and become the final grade given.

Diploma's are divided into 3 Trimesters with basic core units. Bachelor Degrees are divided into 'Courses/Elective Texts/Research/Thesis' (128cr). Master Degrees are divided into 'Courses/Elective Texts/Research/Thesis' (192cr). Doctoral Degrees are divided into 'Elective Texts/Research/Thesis' (256/286cr).
