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 Graduate Diploma and a BA are offered through one of our partners, Eastern College Australia. Both of these courses can meet SIL International’s requirements for people serving in translation and literacy related roles. Eastern also offers an Associate Degree in Arts and a Diploma in Arts but these courses are not sufficient to meet SIL International’s requirements for most field placements in language development roles because of limits on subject choices.
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 Graduate Diploma and BA are offered full-time or part-time and several subjects are available by distance.
