If you are planning on serving in a language development role such as translation, linguistics, literacy or language documentation then a longer course may meet your needs. A BA is offered through one of our partners, Tabor College Victoria. A Graduate Diploma level course is planned. Both of these courses can meet SIL International’s requirements for people serving in translation and literacy related roles.

If you need to learn another language or plan to work cross-culturally, but not to work in a specialised language development role, our six-week Summer School will provide you with the skills and confidence you need.

The BA is offered full-time or part-time and several subjects are available by distance.

A range of assessment methods is used. Assessment types include but are not limited to: essays, reflective journals, oral presentations, portfolios, group work, tests, assessed homework exercises, research projects, transcription, elicitation and class participation.
