For ACT credit, complete the domestic application form. For audit and PTC internal units, see below.
The form has two sections: the first is an ACT form, and the second is for further information collected by PTC.
On the form, please provide the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of two referees, one of whom must be your minister or pastor. PTC will then contact your referees.
Please also provide copies of your educational transcripts and a digital photo.
Complete the overseas application form.
If your educational certificates and records are in a language other than English, an official certified translation must be provided.
English Language test results no more than 3 years old must be provided – IELTS (Academic Version) or TOEFL. PTC reserves the right to set additional work to demonstrate proficiency in English Language.
You must have a valid passport.
A non-refundable $250 application fee is payable.
If you are studying only for PTC internal credit, complete only the supplementary section of the domestic application form. Internal students are students of PTC only, not of the ACT.
For audit, complete an audit application form. Audit is not available to overseas students. Audit students are students of PTC only, not of the ACT.
If you are admitted, you will then need to complete an I.T. use form and a Code of Conduct (Child Protection) form, and also a unit enrolment form after consulting with the Academic Dean. If you would prefer, you may submit these forms with your application.
Interview: the College will review your application to determine your suitability for admission. This usually involves a personal interview with the Principal, Academic Dean, or another faculty member.
English: you may be asked to take a short theological reading test to demonstrate English language proficiency (regardless of any IELTS requirement, and not an alternative to IELTS).
