About

Christian Heritage College (CHC) is located in Brisbane’s south-east in the leafy suburb of Carindale, just 10 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. CHC is a boutique higher education provider that provides academic excellence while maintaining a commitment to Christian truth. It boasts amongst the highest graduate employment rates (85%) and student satisfaction rates (92%) in Queensland (QILT).

At CHC, we believe that degrees do more than just inform, they transform. With undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, education, ministries and social sciences, including counselling and human services, all studies are underpinned by a Christian worldview, offering unique perspectives on these disciplines.

Small class sizes, individualised programs and quality one-on-one advice from lecturers support and encourage students to achieve their best. 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.

CHC forms part of the 92-acre campus of one of Australia’s largest Christian churches, Citipointe Church, with Christian schooling and associated childcare centres onsite. CHC offers plenty of free parking, but public transport is also available within walking distance and bicycle and walking paths link the campus to surrounding suburbs.
