If you have an interest in picking up a unit which is not offered at the Worldview delivery site, any non-core units may be substituted for other units offered through any of the Australian College of Theology (ACT) affiliated colleges. A number of colleges offer these by distance or intensive mode. Likewise, if you want to credit units towards a different ACT award, for example, an Advanced Diploma of Theology, this option may be available.
