"Cambridge University is a great place to be, and to be yourself.

We know from our students that Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion here at Cambridge is a diverse, engaging and enlightening degree programme. Whether your interest is in philosophy, ethics and metaphysics, anthropology, history, literature or the study of Bible and Qur'an (and much else besides) you will find something here just for you. Above all, you will find a welcoming community of teachers and fellow students who believe that 'beliefs' matter.

It's a pleasure for me to encourage you to visit us and find out more about what we can offer you for your degree course."
