Postgraduate research programmes

Heythrop College is no longer accepting applications for research study. As announced on 26th June 2015, Heythrop will cease to be a College of the University of London in the summer of 2018.

Over the course of the remaining years, the work of our four Research Centres and two Institutes, based in the three departments of Theology, Philosophy and Pastoral and Social Studies will continue, offering engaging public events and academic conferences on topical themes. Details of such events will be available on the events page and on the individual Centre and Institute pages.

Heythrop's research community

Our friendly, focused environment and small size (35 research degree supervisors and 50 students across three departments) forms a supportive environment which produces leading research. Heythrop is home to the prestigious Heythrop Journal and has one of the finest specialist libraries in philosophy and theology in the UK. As an affiliate college of the University of London, our students have full access to Senate House Library and to an extended research community, with with regular opportunities to hear and engage with world-famous academics across a variety of colleges in London. We also host a wealth of seminars, conferences and workshops throughout the year for our students to attend.
