About Sheridan Institute of Higher Education

Sheridan Institute of Higher Education is an independent community of Christian scholars in the Perth CBD engaged in specialised teaching and research. The College welcomes students from all faiths or none to complete their chosen degree in collaboration with the College faculty.

Sheridan Institute of Higher Education is:

  • Nationally-recognised. Sheridan Institute of Higher Education degrees are accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). TEQSA is the federal regulatory body responsible for ensuring the quality and integrity of Australia’s university sector.
  • Not-for-profit. The College is an incorporated association, and is governed by a Board of Directors. All surplus funds remaining at the end of each financial year are reinvested into the College.
  • Private. The College is financially independent of state and federal government funding. In place of FEE-HELP, domestic students can opt for private tuition finance organised by Sheridan Institute of Higher Education’s parent not-for-profit association, Australian Baptist Education Inc.
  • Research-oriented. Students begin learning research skills in the first year of their undergraduate program, and have an opportunity to collaborate with faculty on College research projects. In their final year, all undergraduate students complete a substantial research project of their own.
  • Conveniently-located. Sheridan Institute of Higher Education’s main campus is in the Perth CBD, adjacent to the train line and several bus routes. The Perth Cultural Centre and many city amenities are close by

Sheridan Institute of Higher Education was founded by members of the Baptist denomination, and began delivering its first courses in 2015.

One of the College’s core commitments is to reduce financial barriers to quality higher education. Tuition fees paid by students are only applied to teaching and administration costs, not redirected to cross-subsidise research. For this reason, Sheridan Institute of Higher Education is able to deliver Bachelor and Master courses at tuition rates lower than those charged by public universities.
