YES! If you choose the ‘Block mode’, then you can travel to Sydney four times a year for block lectures, and direct (if that is best) to Fiji for mission. Throughout, the year, you will continue learning online. Visit ‘Two Modes’ for more information.
That said, even if you live a couple of hours away from Sydney, you may still choose to do Year 13 via the ‘Continuous mode’ and commute each week. In the past, we have had students from Lithgow, Ulladulla, the NSW Central Coast and Newcastle make the trip to Loftus each week.
Yes, all students are expected to stay overnight during term time. This is an important part of the community experience.
If you don’t own a car or have a license, don’t worry! The Year 13 campus is within walking distance from rail transport, and you may make friends you can carpool with. Not having a car or a license will not impact on your ability to fully partake in all elements of the Year 13 program.
Youthworks College is an affiliated college with the Australian College of Theology CRICOS Provider Code 02650E. Therefore all Year 13 students enrolled in the ASTC Certificate or Diploma of Christian Studies are considered full-time students. As such, they are entitled to concession fares on public transport. This concession does not apply to Audit Students.
I have grown so much in my understanding and love for God. Year 13 is the best thing to do between school and whatever is next.Ally Rowe, 2015
