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 institute of higher education that offers academic excellence with a Christian worldview.

CHC has one of Queensland’s highest graduate employment rates for education and student satisfaction, and it ranks highly in teaching quality and student support (QILT).
Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, education, ministries, human services, and counselling offer an integration of faith and technical acumen. You do not need to be a Christian to apply.

Small class sizes, individualised programmes, and quality one-on-one advice from lecturers both 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, with Christian schooling and associated childcare centres onsite. CHC offers plenty of free parking, with public transport available within walking distance, and bicycle and walking paths link the campus to surrounding suburbs.

Applications for all undergraduate courses and Master of Teaching courses are made through QTAC. Applications for all other courses are made directly to CHC. Entry to undergraduate courses normally requires the completion of Year 12 (or equivalent) and the achievement of a minimum ATAR, but non-ATAR students may be eligible for admission if they achieve a minimum QTAC Selection Rank based on other studies, such as vocational courses. Some courses have additional admission requirements; for example, some counselling and ministry courses require referees, a personal statement, and, in some cases, an interview. All admission requirements and entry criteria can be found on the relevant course pages of the CHC website.

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