About

Christian Heritage College (CHC) was established in 1986 to offer a Christian alternative in higher education. Today we represent a close-knit student community of approximately 800. A place where lives are transformed and people are equipped to make a difference to the world around them, CHC provides academic excellence while maintaining a commitment to Christian worldview.

CHC graduates are sought after by employers and consistently rate their course experience as amongst the nation’s best, with extremely high satisfaction rates. Smaller class sizes mean that staff know students by name and provides for authentic and meaningful interaction. Staff wholeheartedly embrace the CHC vision and provide quality one-on-one advice, support and encouragement to students in their personal, spiritual and academic development. The atmosphere of inclusion and shared aspirations makes life at CHC a rewarding experience, with many students continuing their association with the CHC community long after they graduate.

Application to CHC’s undergraduate courses and postgraduate Master of Teaching courses is through QTAC. Entry usually requires Year 12 or equivalent, but CHC does not use ATARs as the sole indicator of entry eligibility. For entry to certain courses, we may request referees reports, a personal statement and, in some cases, an interview.

CHC is located at Carindale in Brisbane’s south-east, only 10km from the city centre. There ample free parking on campus; and convenient public transport within walking distance as well as bicycle and walking paths linking the campus to surrounding suburbs.
