Q. Is there an age limit?
There is no age limit.
Q. I want to do the programme but have a family. Are you able to provide accommodation for them as well?
We do not provide accommodation for families, however spouses with children have found temporary living accommodation in the neighbourhood on previous programmes.
Q. Is there any time off?
There is a five-day break in the middle of the Leadership and Public Service programme, and a Christmas and New Year break during the Leadership and Civil Society programme. Otherwise, every second weekend from Saturday lunch onwards is available for leisure or family visits, pending other programme events.
Q. What if I don't have a university degree?
We generally require a completed university degree with a high GPA, but accept enquiries from non-graduates. Applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Q. Do you have a track record?
We have successfully run multiple programmes annually since 2011.
Q. What denomination are you associated with?
We have strong relations with most denominations across Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox traditions.
Q. Is the Centre politically aligned?
No. As an Australian Christian Lobby initiative, the Centre has no formal links to any political party.
Q. Are programmes accredited?
No. To maintain the flexibility and responsiveness of curricula to changing social and political contexts, we have made a strategic decision to keep programmes free from the limitations of external accreditation.
Q. Do you take international students?
Yes, we are registered as Visa sponsors and take international students. Prospective international students are responsible for organisation and costs of Visa arrangements and flights to and from Canberra. International students must return to their country of origin upon completion of the internship.
