Intern Year Launched

22 Dec 2015


The Uniting College is excited to announce the launch of  Intern Year in 2016. Intern Year is just one course in a suite of leadership courses the Uniting Church SA and Uniting College will be launching in 2016.

Intern Year (formerly Big Year Out) is an exciting new program that partners with local churches and faith communities to disciple and cultivate young leaders.

The 12-month, part-time program combines community, Certificate IV in Christian Life and Ministry subjects (10469NAT - Adelaide College of Divinity RTO Code 4863), and ministry experience in local churches or faith communities. 

Take advantage of heavily subsidised course fees by applying before January 31. The cost for the 13 subjects is usually over $5000, but all successful Intern Year candidates receive scholarship funding and only pay $1860. After  31 January, the course fees rise to $1,970 – still a huge saving!

Students are drawn to the programme from a variety of cultural backgrounds and denominations, and are pursuing diverse career and vocational pathways. Intern Year is passionate about partnering with local churches and faith organisations and working with them to help equip young adults.

Intern Year includes the following:
Certificate IV in Christian Life and Ministry (10496 NAT), students will learn how to teach
and lead in each focus area
• personal spiritual practices and scripture reading
• volunteer ministry and leadership in your local
church/organisation (accredited in CertIV)
• mid-year Urban Mission Exposure Trip to Sydney
• learn with a peer group of young adult leaders
on Wednesdays at Uniting College
as well as opportunities to engage in various conferences, activities, indigenous partnerships, etc.

*Please contact Danica Patselis (Danica.Patselis@flinders.edu.au), Intern Year Coordinator about payment options and details regarding pricing and fundraising opportunities. 

*Certificate IV in Christian Life and Ministry (10496NAT) at Adelaide College of Divinity RTO Code 4863. The cost of the 13 subjects is usually over $5000 in total, but all Intern Year students are covered by the RH White scholarship upon acceptance of application, and only pay the $1860. 

*Intern Year is flexible and therefore students only undertake the number of subjects and hours of ministry experience which they are capable of doing alongside their other important life commitments. The commitment level varies on each student's availability and capacity.
