- Do you want to learn more about God and what He is doing in His world?
- Would you like to broaden your horizons, experience different cultures and get to know people from across the world
- Would you like to experience mission first hand, either overseas or in the UK?
If you can answer YES to these questions then why not consider spending some or all of your gap year at Redcliffe.
If you are planning to work abroad during your gap year, our twelve-week Across the Cultures
short course will give you the essential skills for living and working in a different culture.
You can also prepare by studying for 6 or more weeks on our Pick and Mix
course. You can come to Redcliffe at any time during the year, and experience living in our vibrant multicultural community as you prepare for your time abroad. You can choose from a wide range of study options and learn alongside people from around the world.
Mark spent a term at Redcliffe before going to Cuba as a Latin Link Strider:
A major part of life at Redcliffe is the social side - it has been a wonderful opportunity to meet
people from different cultures and countries from around the world….
there is a great deal of support on offer at Redcliffe – even if, like
me, you are here for just one term
Our one year Certificate in Applied Theology in Intercultural Contexts
combines study with weekly mission placements in the local community, giving you excellent biblical, cross cultural and mission training and experience. You will also try out your skills on what could be a life-changing experience by undertaking a six-week mission placement
. Our placement coordinator will offer support and advice to help you find the right placement.
Ellie spent her gap year at Redcliffe before studying law at Oxford:
The course was really interesting and helped consolidate my faith. The idea of doing placements also interested me – I could study, travel
and get to know people all over the world who were also studying at Redcliffe.
While at Redcliffe, Ellie went on placement to work with prisoners in Capetown, South Africa. You can read more about Ellie's experience in our mission placements
