ICCollege has four intakes a year – January, April, July and October. It is recommended that students enrol at the beginning of each academic year. Early application is advisable.
Recognition of Competence
Anyone who feels that they can demonstrate skills & knowledge which are the intended learning outcomes of a particular subject can apply for recognition. This includes the “Recognition of Current Competency” (RCC) or “Recognition of Prior Learning” (RPL), or the process of credit transfer. If you want to apply for ROC, please see the Administrator. Fees apply.
Credit for external subjects after the commencement of studies at ICCollege will not be transferable, except in extreme circumstances and with the written permission of the Registrar and Director of ICCollege.
The requirements for admission to ICCollege are governed by its purpose, that is, to train ministers, missionaries and Christian workers. As such, it is necessary that applicants: –
- Demonstrate a genuine New Testament faith and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour;
- Exhibit a consistent Christian lifestyle – including to be free from habits of drunkenness, smoking, profane language, sexual sins;
- Are a member of and are involved in the ministry of a local church;
- Have a recommendation from the Senior Pastor or designated church leader of your local church;

It is essential that all students are proficient in the spoken and written use of English. Where English is the second language of an applicant, and they are studying as an overseas student an IELTS score of 5.5 or higher is required unless otherwise stipulated in the student visa assessment.
Students will be assessed through the application process as to their literacy level via the module “Introduction to the English Language”. Further training and assessment will be tailored for each student until the relevant learning outcomes are achieved. Students can choose to study ELICOS that API’s Language Centre is offering Certificate I, II, III and IV in Spoken and Written English (Further Studies). The Certificate IV in Spoken and Written English gives entry level of English as the equivalent of IELTS 5.5. Please log on to www.apinstitute.qld.edu.au for further information.
ICCollege will ensure that no applicant will be disadvantaged in any way because of their race, gender, age (recognising of course the minimum age), social or educational background or disability.
