Theology, Religion and Philosophy of Religion is no longer accepting new applications.

This course is wonderful. The range of subjects from which one can choose provides anyone who is interested in religion (whether from a faith position or not) with ample scope to explore, in depth, almost any of its aspects. I was able to combine church history, scriptural analysis, theology, and doctrine. I had not anticipated, for one subject, close consideration of Dante, Luther, Shakespeare, and Gertrude the Great of Helfta! There can be few other courses which include such a variety of fascinating disciplines.

The quality of teaching is, of course, second to none. Coming to these subjects for the first time, later in life than most, was not easy for me (exactly as I hoped and expected!) and the help I received was exemplary. The personal attention given to individual students is a particular feature of the course, part of which is the excellent Cambridge supervision system.

I strongly recommend the Advanced Diploma. I loved it.
