Academic Requirements:

No particular subjects at A level (or equivalent) are required for Theology & Religious Studies and it is not necessary to have studied Religious Studies at AS or A level. Evidence of linguistic aptitude is required and subjects such as Religious Studies, History, English and modern languages can be helpful, but so can any subjects that encourage clear, logical thinking and careful analysis of evidence. Students with a completely science background study Theology and Religious Studies and do very well.

See also Entrance requirements for additional advice about general requirements for entry, qualifications and offers.


Candidates will be asked in advance to submit two marked essays or other written work. This should be in a related discipline which the candidate is studying/ has studied. Candidates will be asked to sit an essay based test before interview. At interview, engagement with and enthusiasm for the subject will be explored by the course Director of Studies and Admissions Tutor.
