Course dates and pathways

UK degrees are structured differently to many international programmes, and each Redcliffe MA is made up of four taught modules and a research dissertation.

With the Oceania Summer Schools, each module is taught in a one-week intensive, with two modules taken per year for the first two years.

A typical student will study the following:

Year 1

Attend the two-week Oceania Summer School in November, and study two compulsory modules giving an overview of global missiological issues and methods for postgraduate-level research.*

Engage with online tutorials, tailored assignments and distance learning throughout the rest of the year.

Year 2

Attend your second Oceania Summer School for two modules looking at your area of speciality, either Leadership or Member Care.*

Engage with online tutorials, tailored assignments and distance learning throughout the rest of the year, and prepare to begin a research dissertation in a field relevant to your work.

Years 3 to 4

Complete your research dissertation with distance supervision and graduate with an MA in your chosen field.

 

* Redcliffe modules are delivered in two year cycles; so while you can begin your studies at any Summer School, the order in which you complete your modules depends on your entry year.

Summer School 2017 – 30 January – 10 February, Sydney, AU (missiology modules)

Summer School 2018 – 29 January – 9 February, Hamilton, NZ (specialism modules)

Course fees

Redcliffe’s course fees are competitive, simple to calculate, and consist of three major categories:

Tuition fees

Each Oceania Summer School student pays GBP £5,500 to complete their MA programme (typically approx $9,000 to $9,500 depending on exchange rate). Students must pay 50% by the start of year one, and 100% by the start of year two. This is the cost of the whole programme, not a cost-per-credit or cost-per-module price.

Mode of Delivery fee

An additional fee is payable to cover the costs of food, accommodation and the non-academic programme during each Summer School. For the two-week NZ delivery in January 2018, this cost is £500 for residential students.

Annual Administration fee

Students can take between two and four years to complete their programme. For each year that they are enrolled on the course, a fee is chargeable. This is subject to change, but is currently £270 (invoiced in GBP).

Please note that for students applying in 2017 for a 2018 start, there are a limited number of scholarships available.
