The Certificate in Applied Theology in Intercultural Contexts gives you foundational cross-cultural mission training and is the first year of the three year BA(Hons) Degree.
Who is the course for?
Students on our Certificate course come from many walks of life. For some, the Certificate is an opportunity to be better equipped for cross-cultural work, while for others it is a time to explore and think about God's calling for the first time.
You can study this validated course full-time over one year, or part-time over two years, and begin in September or January. The course includes compulsory modules on biblical, mission and practical subjects, and you choose from a selection of optional modules.

Lectures and assignments cater for a wide variety of learning styles, with group discussion, practical exercises, time for reflection, written work and presentations. Practical placements and personal development are also an integral part of the course.
Between September and April you are based at Redcliffe. Your 6-week term placement between April and June takes place in the UK or around the world. You then return to Redcliffe for a further two weeks. This includes time to debrief and consolidate your learning and experiences. Students have used their placements to explore more about their future ministry, while others use this time to do something completely different.
One of the best things about Redcliffe is the quality of the lectures - there is flexibility regarding which courses can be taken and you have the opportunity to explore and discuss issues in a cross-cultural context
