Cambridge University's Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion (TRPR) undergraduate course has once again secured its position amongst the world’s top academic programs in the most recent 2023/24 ratings, earning top-tier rankings again across multiple prestigious publications including The Guardian, The Times and The Complete University Guide, consolidating an outstanding round of firsts:

  1. The Guardian Rankings: The Cambridge TRPR course clinched first position in The Guardian's higher education rankings, a position we have held for several years, reaffirming our status as the premier program in theology, religion, and philosophy in the UK.
  2. The Times Rankings: The TRPR tripos secured the highest place in The Times rankings, with the excellent career prospects of our graduates topping all other universities
  3. The Complete University Guide Rankings: Our course came out top, with our students again being recognised for their outstanding graduate prospects
  4. QS World University Rankings: In the QS World University Rankings, which takes into account academic reputation, employer reputation and faculty research, Cambridge ranked 4th in the world, affirming our global reputation for excellence in religious and philosophical studies.

Professor Richard Rex, Chair of the Faculty Board of Divinity and Professor of Reformation History said:

“Universities are ultimately about people. These very gratifying rankings reflect the dedication and achievements of our staff, students, and graduates, who should take a proper pride in this recognition. At a time when some critics have voiced doubts about the value of a university education in the arts and humanities, it is particularly heartening to note that employment prospects for graduates play an important part in such tables. The excellent career prospects of our graduates in theology and religious studies show that, in the real world, the knowledge and skills students develop on our course are highly prized by a wide range of employers.”
