The College is now, with sadness, working towards closure shortly after the 2017/18 academic year. We will be remaining on our current site until October 2018 but there is no plan for the move of any departments or a continuation of Heythrop College anywhere else. The future development of the Jesuit intellectual apostolate will be something different and will emerge out of discussions the British Province is having, to which we will contribute.
For the current academic year our focus has been to ensure that Heythrop’s high teaching standards are maintained and that you are given the best possible experience during your time with the College. See more on the Student Experience Commitment.
We are currently reviewing arrangements to support you after the closure of the College, including access to duplicate certificates and transcripts through the University of London. More information on this will be available shortly.
Past and current students should be assured that your University of London award will retain its currency and significance after the College closes. For our alumni we are putting in place mechanisms to ensure you are able to apply for copies of your certificates and transcripts. More information on this will be available shortly.
Our Work and Events
Over the course of the coming academic year, we will continue to connect with the wider community and to engage in high quality research, publication and work in the public square.
Heythrop College Library
Heythrop College Library will be closing after the end of the academic year 2017-2018. The collection of over 250,000 volumes of books and bound volumes of periodicals, widely regarded as one of the finest collections of theology and philosophy in the UK, will continue to be made accessible onsite – many discoverable online for the first time - to readers through Senate House Library from October 2018. Read more on this here.
For those interested in flexible and distance learning, the University of London International Programmes continues to offer Undergraduate level programmes in ‘ Divinity and Theology’ and ‘ Philosophy, Religion and Ethics’ with input from a variety Heythrop staff.
