Online resources overview

HE+, run by the University of Cambridge, has launched a section for sixth form students who want to further their interest in religious studies.

The site gives you the opportunity to read about a topic that isn't linked to your A-level curriculum  You can discover resources such as extra reading material, links to external websites and exercises to try out.

The site is part of a national scheme of HE+ partners. However, even if your school isn't participating in this, you can still use the resources. While there won't be the opportunity to get feedback on your responses to the questions, we hope that you find them useful to develop your skills and deepen your understanding of the subject area. 

No prior knowledge is assumed, so please have a look, whatever you subject interests are.

The topics focus on The Historical Figure of Jesus of Nazareth, The Dead Sea Scrolls, Political Religion and Conservative Christianity in the USA, and Perfect Being Theology. More topics will be released over the course of the year.

You can access these and sign up to receive an email when further topics are added at

Past resources

We filmed some of the talks from the 2015 July Open Day. Please note that there may be some differences in the course since these films were made (notably that our course is now BA Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion and that we have introduced an at-interview admissions exercise.
