Wycliffe Hall, Oxford
Wycliffe Hall is one of the best centres for evangelical Christian life and study within the Oxford University. Its alumni and tutors have a strong record of publication and research in a broad range of aspects of Theology.
Many of the Wycliffe's students receive training for Christian ministry, especially, within the Anglican Church. This generally involves the study of first diplomas or degrees in theology. Nevertheless, students who already have degrees in theology may combine training for Christian ministry with graduate study. Some of the students come to Wycliffe Hall solely to work towards postgraduate research degrees. The college lays strong emphasis on Christian community and commitment. Wycliffe encourages students to play a dynamic part in that community.
Candidates who are interested to take admission to the college must contact the Hall directly. Such candidates need to submit the Hall's own application form that should be completed in addition to the University Graduate admission form. Candidates have to appear for the interview at some point after a university place has been offered. Candidates are advised to contact the Hall for further information.
