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:
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.
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.
Redcliffe's course fees are competitive, simple to calculate, and consist of three major categories:
Each Oceania Summer School student pays GBP £5,750 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 delivery in Sydney starting late January 2019, this cost will be approximately £800 for residential students (to be confirmed).
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 2018 for a 2019 start, there are a limited number of scholarships available.
