Wycliffe Hall

Wycliffe is a warm and welcoming evangelical theological 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. We aim to equip our students through excellent academic teaching, practical ministry experience and living as part of a vibrant and supportive Christian community.

Students at Wycliffe Hall

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.

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, very often 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.

Our student body is delightfully diverse, comprising women and men of many different nationalities and traditions. Such an environment makes for a rich and creative milieu of ideas, and lifelong friendships.
