Perth Bible College arose from a vision of the world’s need for the gospel of grace, the need for more effective servants of the gospel, and the need for intentional Bible-based ministry and theological training. During the past 80 years thousands of people have been trained and entered God’s service in a host of ministries both here in Western Australia, interstate, and abroad. Perth Bible College continues today by the grace and faithfulness of God with this same vision. There are many who still need to be reached, and there are ministries everywhere that need to be started and strengthened by men and women skilled and passionate about the gospel.
All our courses not only provide a deep Biblical understanding but also the necessary skills to communicate, relate well and to understand culture. One of our top priorities is to provide people not just with knowledge but with transferable skills as they go into ministry, making each graduate immediately effective.
Perth Bible College offers the following courses. These courses can be studied full-time, part-time, or externally.

Undergraduate Courses:
Diploma of Ministry (1 Year):
The Diploma of Ministry is equivalent to one year of full-time study at Degree level.

Diploma of Ministry with English Studies (1 Year):
The Diploma of Ministry with English was designed as an option for students whose English skills need to be extended prior to undertaking further studies in English.

Advanced Diploma in Christian Ministry (3 Years):
This Advanced Diploma is structured to provide students with the necessary practical skills and a solid Biblical grounding so they are equipped to lead a life of Christian service.

Bachelor of Ministry Degree (3 Years):
This Degree reflects the core intention of PBC. It provides a rich academic and practically integrated program that equips students for a lifetime of ministry and enables them to be an effective trainer of others.

Postgraduate Courses:
Perth Bible College provides a variety of postgraduate courses accredited by Sydney College of Divinity and provided by PBC as a campus of Emmaus Bible College (which is a member of SCD). The Sydney College of Divinity operates as a leading theological provider, offering high quality, accredited awards to equip people for effective professional research and ministry in a rapidly changing environment.
Perth Bible College has had several homes over the years. Early premises were rented in and around Mount Lawley. In September 1934, the College moved into buildings on its own land in Joondanna. The picture to the left, taken in 1940, shows the Principals house on the left, the lecture hall in the centre and the training home on the right. From February 1951 until July 1986, it was again located at Mount Lawley, after which it moved to the current Karrinyup campus.
