If you want to study by e-learning, and to obtain a Theology degree, you may want to consider the South African Theological Seminary. Studies may be done full-time or part-time. These studies are appropriate for translators and scripture engagement personnel. SATS also accredits the i-DELTA courses in translation and scripture engagement. For a fuller explanation, click here. Applications must now be completed online. See the instructions.
You should register for courses using your mysats login. When you want to register for a new course, you should go to the SATS website and sign up for the courses using your login information. If you have been through iDELTA, there will be a filter that prevents you from taking courses that your have received credit for through the iDELTA program.
Please note there are some changes in the SATS curriculum. There are two important documents for you to download. Core Curriculum, Schedule.
You will receive an INVOICE for the course(s) chosen. You should submit that INVOICE to your SUPERVISOR.
SUPERVISORS should submit the invoice and payment information to AFA Finance. The payment information should include the following:
Account to charge:
Supervisor’s permission for the student to take this/these course/s.
Once the payment is made, the course(s) will be made available. Note that SIL is receiving a significant savings already, and so there will be no bulk discount advantage.
SATS is making arrangements for supervisors to have access to student accounts so they can track the status of a student easily.
These new procedures apply to ALL SATS students. The SIL Registrar will continue to process enrollment for Bible Translation and the Church and any future iDELTA Anglophone courses.
If you have questions or problems, contact the Anglophone Registrar.
Africa International University Bachelors in Development Studies or education or linguistics and translation
If you are interested in Literacy, Linguistics, Sociolinguistics or Anthropology, you should consider a degree under the School of Education, Arts and Social Sciences at Africa International University. Degrees may be done residentially or by e-learning, full-time or part-time. We are working with AIU so that they accredit the i-DELTA courses in linguistics, literacy, assessment and anthropology. For more information, click here.
We also have a former iDELTA student in the translation department at AIU, so it is possible to take their translation track together with iDELTA courses.
