About Excelsia

Inspiring the next generation of Leaders
At Excelsia College, our students come from all walks of life, bringing with them many different backgrounds, traditions and experiences, but they have something important in common.
People in our community are passionate about excelling and growing: academically, professionally, creatively, personally, spiritually, and in their understanding of the world and their place in it.

Choosing to undertake an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at Excelsia College will provide you with a firm foundation for your personal and professional life.


You will find a supportive, Christ-centred environment, with world-class academics and accomplished industry professionals who are ready to stand beside you and encourage you on your journey. Your gifts and talents will be fostered as you are challenged to maximise your potential. Small class sizes and interaction with our vibrant, collaborative community provide not only an expansive network of Christians, artists and professionals but also life-long friendships.


Excitingly, together with Indiana Wesleyan University, we are part of a global Christian learning community with big plans for the future. Excelsia College has 36 years of experience in Christian higher education in Australia, and IWU has 99 years of experience in Christ-centred education in the US and global markets. Together the partners are well positioned to take Christian higher education to the next level in Australia for undergraduate and postgraduate students.


Both in and out of the classroom, we trust you will develop your character as well as your mind, and explore and deepen your faith so that you are able to engage thoughtfully and sustainably in your vocation and in your community.


We look forward to sharing your journey towards a fulfilling and inspiring future. Welcome to Excelsia College.

Ireni Farag

School of Counselling

Counselling Lecturer

Excellence in Teaching Award overall winner for 2021 was Ireni Farag for designing teaching underpinned by socio-cultural research and a desire to stimulate curiosity in students that encourages life-long learning and enhances the student learning experience at Excelsia College.

Her application provided numerous examples of versatile teaching methods that enhanced students‘ learning experience at Excelsia college. Carefully designed, scaffolded assessments ensure students are introduced carefully to complex theories and models. Case studies that include Christian organisations display a level of design in which students gain intimate knowledge of potential organisations where they can work in the future. Adaption of a client-centred counselling approach to teaching is evidenced by enthusiastic and inspired student feedback.
