Academic Program

The academic program is based at Box Hill in Melbourne, Victoria. Our students study philosophy and theology at the Yarra Theological Union. Those students who are able to meet the requirements will, in the course of their studies, earn a Masters of Theology Degree from the Melbourne College of Divinity.

Students also need to fulfil two years of an Overseas Training Program (OTP) which is normally done after three years of full-time study at YTU. Some students training to become SVD Brothers, undertake other professional courses at universities. The full course of studies in preparation for priestly ordination, apart from the OTP, is normally completed in five-and-a-half years of full-time study.
