For over 400 years, Heythrop College has specialised in the study of Philosophy and Theology. Here, these subjects are not merely departments within a larger institution; the whole College is devoted to their study. Our students have access to one of the finest libraries in its field, and are taught by one of the largest teaching staff in these areas. We are a unique community of scholars, passionate about discussing and exploring Philosophy and Theology in the context of the modern world and the diverse city of London.
As announced at its meeting on 26 June 2015, the Governing Body has concluded that the College in its current form, as a constituent college of the University of London, will come to an end in 2018, although its mission and work will not.
Whilst options for the future of the College are explored, we are pleased to confirm we are accepting applications for the following areas of study in the academic year 2016-17:
- Full-time MA and MRes programmes commencing in September 2016
- Postgraduate Certificate programmes commencing in September 2016
- Individual modules at undergraduate or postgraduate level as a visiting or auditing student
We regret that we are unable to offer undergraduate programmes (both full and part-time), part-time taught postgraduate programmes and postgraduate research programmes for study in 2016-17. For further updates on the future of Heythrop College, please visit our news section.
