SCD Orientation



Orientation is a program of activities that introduces you to your place of study and the services available to help you find your way around and pursue your studies knowing that you will be supported in your learning and other needs as they may arise. The Orientation program is one of these services.

A list of student services is set out below with an indication of where to find the relevant information on this website or in ACCS’ Learning Management System, which is Moodle. The main part of this list of services is available for all students enrolled in awards of the Sydney College of Divinity, to assist you to reach your academic goals and keep you safe and well along the way. For overseas students, additional assistance is available to help you settle into Australia and your local neighbourhood.

For all students, the Student Support Officer may always be contacted for any matter of concern at any time.

Orientation Program

All SCD students commencing their studies, including overseas students, are expected to participate in the Orientation Program arranged for their benefit. Through it you will be offered useful information about academic matters, about how we will support your studies, and how we will strive to make your overall experience while you are with us safe and enjoyable. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

Commencing students intending to undertake their studies completely online are asked to access and read carefully the Orientation program available online no later than the first day of the teaching period.

ACCS’ Burwood NSW campus only teaches SCD awards online. ACCS’ Perth WA campus at Perth Bible College offers both in-class attendance and studies for international students.
