Soak up culture and make an impact with our London-based humanities degrees.

We’re 30 minutes from central London. Therefore, you’ll access the capital’s:

  • diverse literature scene
  • world-renowned museums and archives
  • theatres
  • governmental institutions and embassies
  • think tanks
  • religious landmarks.

Our campus is also next to Strawberry Hill House. This is where Horace Walpole, celebrated gothic author, lived to inspire his work. As a result, our humanities degrees are fully immersive and geographically distinct.

If you’re interested in a theology degree, you should know we have a long and distinguished history as a Catholic institution that prioritises openness and inclusivity.

You will learn from research-active experts. And because class sizes are small, they’ll give you one-to-one support. We’re:

  • 1st in London for ‘Academic Support’ (National Student Survey (NSS), 2023).
  • 2nd in London for ‘Teaching on My Course’ (NSS, 2023).

Not only that, you can also:

  • network with employers and senior figures in your chosen field
  • work on creative projects like films, magazines, and podcasts
  • contribute to public presentations
  • complete work experience.

As a result, you’ll gain practical and diverse experience and stand out after graduation.

We also have several research centres:
