Wycliffe Hall

Wycliffe Hall is an evangelical theological college. We aim to equip our students through excellent academic teaching, practical ministry experience and living as part of a vibrant and supportive Christian community. Wycliffe students and tutors consistently gain the highest academic awards within the University and our alumni have experienced some fantastic success as theologians, apologists and church leaders.

Our student body is delightfully diverse, comprising women and men of many different nationalities and traditions. Our students study for a range of ministries as ordained clergy, preachers, evangelists and scholars. Such an environment makes for a rich and creative milieu of ideas, and lifelong friendships.

Wycliffe is a warm and welcoming college which places a strong emphasis on Christian community and commitment. Students are encouraged to play an active part in the life and worship of the hall, as far as their course allows.


The hall is a 5-minute walk from the historic centre of Oxford and is located adjacent to the beautiful University Parks.

Accommodation and meals

Most single students live in study rooms on the main site at Wycliffe Hall. Students with families may be offered accommodation off site and have full access to the crèche and other student facilities.

Courses offered

Wycliffe accepts mature students (those aged 21 and over) to study for the BA in Theology and Religion or the BA in Philosophy and Theology, usually with Senior Status (where the student has already completed an undergraduate degree, and may start an Oxford undergraduate degree in its second year).

Wycliffe also offers specialist courses for those wishing to train for Christian ministry: see www.wycliffehall.org.uk/ministerial-training.


Wycliffe Hall has outstanding facilities including one of the best theological libraries in the University. All student rooms have Wi-Fi and access to the University computer network.

Student societies

All students are full members of a thriving common room. There are regular football and cricket matches and opportunities to participate in a broad range of other sports including rugby and rowing. Students are encouraged to take a full part in the wide range of societies across the University.
