You will be working with scholars at the forefront of their disciplines. In the most recent assessment of research quality, 88% of our research activity was judged to be of world-leading or internationally excellent quality, putting us in the Top Ten of the UK’s Theology and Religious Studies Departments. We work across Religious Studies, Historical and Systematic Theology, Biblical Studies, Philosophy of Religion, and Practical and Contextual Theology and Ethics, meaning our students can be confident they are being taught by scholars with international reputations in their subjects.

This international academic expertise directly informs the design of our courses, and underpins our reputation for excellent teaching.  We are delighted to one of the most highly ranked TRS Departments in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2023, including top place for student satisfaction with feedback.
