Graduate Courses

Wycliffe Hall offers graduates the opportunity to develop their academic training and research to the highest levels, while being supported within a closely knit Christian community. With one of the largest graduate theological communities in Oxford, at Wycliffe you will be encouraged to explore your vocation, to prepare for your future, and to experience the riches that Oxford has to offer.


In addition to being involved in the wider Wycliffe community, Wycliffe’s Graduate Centre provides a more intimate community for its graduate students, and organizes a wide range of events throughout the term, providing a stimulating environment for graduate students to meet and share with one another academically, socially, and spiritually.

In addition to running its own seminars and lectures, the Graduate Centre invests significantly in its members. Whether in providing personal study space, funding for conferences, mentoring from its senior academics, training in lecture, seminar, and tutorial environments, or one of the largest theological libraries in Oxford, Wycliffe is committed to ensuring that graduates are prepared for their future, and leave with the skills to succeed.

Here are some of the experiences of our recent students:


"Alongside the opportunity to embark on original scholarship, there is a supportive and engaging graduate community, a wealth of events and chances to develop new skills, and all the riches that Oxford has to offer."

- Hannah, MPhil and DPhil

“The people I met at Wycliffe model lives of faith in different ways and I’ve learned as much from them and from their stories as from my textbooks. I am grateful for the community at Wycliffe who have walked alongside me through seasons of difficulty and seasons of blessing and have helped me better walk alongside others.”

– Ariel, MSt and DPhil

“Here at Wycliffe Hall, students not only receive academic training of the highest calibre but also become part of a community that invests deeply in their social and spiritual welfare. The dual emphasis placed on building strong community within the college and offering easy access to the rich academic resources of the wider university makes Wycliffe Hall a wonderful place for graduate students who are looking to mature both intellectually and in a more holistic way.”

– Jo, DPhil

“Wycliffe Hall is an outstanding place to pursue graduate studies at Oxford. As someone coming to study from outside the UK, I have found the community at Wycliffe to be welcoming and supportive from day one. The graduate faculty in the MTh program are professional and engaging at every level and have exceeded my expectations. Their personal care for my success is readily apparent. Though I am not Anglican, the Christian influence at the college has also been a welcome part of my experience. If your field of study is available at Wycliffe Hall, I recommend it without reservation.”

– Dallas, MTh


Wycliffe accepts students for a wide range of graduate degrees, that differ in terms of areas of specialization, length of time, and the balance of teaching to research. These include primarily academic courses, as well as those in applied theology. The majority of Wycliffe graduate students are studying for programmes offered through the Faculty of Theology and Religion and the Oriental Institute, however, Wycliffe also accepts students who wish to study graduate degrees offered through other faculties and who wish to make use of Wycliffe’s theological expertise within their studies and vocation.

More information on graduate study at Wycliffe can be found in our graduate prospectus [link].
