PhD in Theology

The PhD is supervised at UTU and validated by York St John University(YSJ).   UTU has developed a unique collegiate style for PhD students, where students are always supported by a team of supervisors, and learn with a cohort of others who also share responsibility for peer-learning, challenge and encouragement.

Cohorts meet four times annually for two-day supervision sessions in Victoria Hall, Sheffield and for 3 training days a year at Luther King Centre (LKC), Manchester. These recognize that the whole person – spiritual, social, mental and emotional – is engaged in the research undertaken.

Our Director of Research is Revd Dr Ian Duffield and our Director of Theological Studies is Revd Dr Rob Hoch

Following our internal interview and application process, under the guidance of UTU and LKC, students directly apply and register with YSJ.
