Universitet haqda məlumat
The University of Divinity is an Australian collegiate university of specialisation in divinity. It is constituted by eleven theological colleges from eight denominations. The University of Divinity is the direct successor of the second oldest degree-granting authority in the State of Victoria (and therefore is now the second oldest university in Victoria) the Melbourne College of Divinity. The university’s chancery and administration are located in Kew, a suburb of Melbourne in the state of Victoria.
In 2010, the Melbourne College of Divinity applied to the Victorian Regulation and Qualifications Authority for approval to operate as an “Australian University of Specialisation”. The Victorian government announced on 30 August 2011 that the application had been approved and on 1 January 2012 the college began operating as a university. Peter Sherlock was elected the inaugural vice-chancellor in April 2012.
