Research Strategies:

The research strategy of the Institute of Theology is to offer intensive doctoral supervision across a wide range of theological disciplines.
In addition to the historical and textual bases upon which many successful PhD doctoral theses are focused, the Institute has expanded its research activities in the field of missiological and pastoral theology.

We are proud of the wide range of students supervised within the Institute both from within the UK and from a wide variety of international countries and expect to put in place formalised international contacts.
