Our MAC application process involves a number of different stages for all new students. See below for more information about each stage.

Prospective students are asked to complete the application form at least three weeks before a unit/semester starts.


We are so pleased you are considering studying with us at Mary Andrews College! Please take the time to look over our website and the courses and units we offer.

  • We’d encourage you to attend one of our MAC Information Sessions. You can book in to one of those here: Information Sessions
  • We’d love the opportunity to talk to you about what study at MAC might look like for you. You can book in a time to speak to one of our staff on the phone or viz Zoom. Please get in touch with us via email  or our enquiry form


The next step in starting your study with us at MAC is to complete our Application Form. The Application Form helps us get to know you, your reasons for coming to study with us, your previous study and your goals after you complete your study.

  • As part of the application process, you will be asked to provide the names of two referees (1 should be a minister or leader in your church) and the other should be someone who knows you well from a Christian context. It is helpful if you have that information handy before beginning the form.
  • In addition, all applicants must also agree to sign our MAC Code of Conduct policy. We would encourage you to read this before signing it as part of your application.
  • ** Applications for Semester 1, 2023 close on Friday 27 January **
  • This form should take between 30 to 45 mins to complete.
  • Based on your previous study, there may be an Admissions Test included in the online form to determine the level of study at which it would be best for you to start. If required to complete it, you will be able to complete the Admissions Test online in one sitting as you are filling out this form, or you will be given the choice to download a copy of the test to return to MAC within a week.

If you need help in filling out this form online, please don’t hesitate to contact our MAC office at [email protected], or calling 1300-590-531.




  • Each completed application form is considered for approval by the MAC Principal and Dean of Students.
  • Applicants will be notified by email about the outcome of their application.
  • Accepted applicants will then be invited to enrol in their specific course and units for the upcoming semester.


  • If your application is accepted, within two weeks of your application you will be emailed a personalised link enabling you to complete an online enrolment form to choose the specific course and units you intend to study in the following semester/year. Using this personalised link will save you time, because it will be pre-filled with your contact details and some of the other information provided on your application form
  • Payment will also be arranged through this form, either by credit card straight away, invoice (for direct deposit, cheque or by instalments) or by giving you instructions on applying for FEE-HELP (available for diploma and graduate diploma courses only).


For further information about admission requirements for our Diploma and Graduate Certificate courses, see the Australian College of Theology’s Coursework Course Enrolment Policy.
