Theology and Religious Studies Taster Day


Event summary 

Our Theology and Religious Studies Taster Day is an event for Year 12 students from state schools that aims to give them a taste of what it's like to study Theology at university, covering topics outside of the traditional A Level curriculum.

The day will include a number of talks and lectures by academics from the department, an admissions talk, a tour of the college, and a chance to speak to current students. All lectures are subject to change and a finalised timetable will be sent to all attendees. There will also be the opportunity to speak informally with our Director of Studies in Theology.

The event is free to attend and lunch and welcome refreshments will be provided.

This year's itinerary can be found here, but please be aware that some lecture topics are likely to change.
