The Centre for Linguistics, Translation and Literacy will no longer be accepting new students from June 2019. If you are interested in equivalent training in the UK, please visit the School of Language and Scripture.

Please note that although the partnership with Wycliffe is changing, Redcliffe College will continue to offer its other MA programmes, in 'Contemporary Missiology', 'Member Care' and 'Leadership in a Complex World' at a variety of hubs in the UK, Oceania and Asia. Many SIL staff have benefited from these as part of their continuing professional development. See www.redcliffe.ac.uk for more information.
