The ethos and profile of St Stephen’s House make it an ideal place for the pursuit of graduate studies. Students read for a range of degrees, in Theology, Education, Oriental Studies, and Late Antique and Byzantine Studies, from one-year taught Master’s to research degrees which can take 3-6 years. In addition to its full-time students, the college also has a number of part-time students.
The college, as a community of mature students, is a natural and conducive place for graduate study. We aim to provide a context which is happy and civilised, with a balance between a quiet work environment and a friendly, sociable, supportive community; a place where study and our life together are taken seriously. Students of all faiths and none are equally welcomed into this community, and for those who wish it, access to a rich diet of liturgy and worship is available, and a seat in chapel will be reserved for you on request.
All PGCE students have a College Advisor to serve as a focal point for their relationship with the college, and who is available for regular consultation with them on academic or other matters.
The University itself has a strong reputation for research and teaching, with outstanding faculties representing a broad range of specific interests. Students have access to library facilities as good as any in the world, with comprehensive collections for every aspect of study.
